  • Description

    Hi all! I'm currently a Psychology student at the University of Glasgow seeking to explore the world and myself at the same time. I'm an avid nature lover and will run to any opportunity that lets me do meaningful work outdoors. When the weather permits, I head to the Highlands for a hike with my friends or join a tree-planting group in my local community. I've been a horse lover and rider since I could walk, so any placement where I can work with horses will be my absolute dream. I'm keen to get my hands dirty helping with building works, farming or animal care. I care deeply about the environment, animals and meaningful social connections. Any project where I can combine these passions, while being able to expand my personal skills and help you with whatever you are working towards, will be a dream.
