Hello! I'm Erin, a 20 year old from Cape Town, South Africa.
Just the simple thought of travelling and seeking new adventures brings complete and utter happiness to my heart. It has been something I have wanted to do since before finishing school. As a highly open-minded, motivated and adaptable individual, I am looking for the opportunity that will allow me to further my capabilities through learning from others, to embrace change and most importantly, to offer my help and kindness to the world.
I am a fitness-enthusiast, coffee-lover and I care deeply for animals. I feel strongly about social justice issues and treating others with respect, love and empathy. I am extremely excited and eager to experience new cultures, ideas and ways of living. I thrive on spontaneity, being around people and the thrill of stepping out of my comfort zone.

More details about your skills
I have been working since the age of 16, mainly in the restaurant/service industry. I have been waitressing at a local coffee shop for just over a year now, since finishing school. From this, I have made many connections and have gained efficient people skills. I completed a coffee course when I was 18, so I am a certified barista too.
I also attained my Level 5 TEFL qualification, from which I hope to teach English abroad.
I have always had a passion for health, wellness and fitness. I consider myself a very active person and practice intuitive movement, eating and mindfulness - all things good for the mind, body and soul!
More details about my language interests
I am interested in learning other languages, as well as teaching English to those who are wanting to learn.
What else ...
I have a burning desire to get out into the world, to meet people, to explore, to discover, to experience, to offer help, to learn, to love, to share, to influence and to be influenced. I believe it is this which will grant us the abundance of life's great gifts.
