  • Description

    Hi there :) I'm Svenja, I'm 26 years old and from Germany :)

    I grew up in the countryside about 2 hours from Cologne with a lot of nature and animals around.
    I always loved traveling and getting to know different parts of the world!
    So I went abroad and lived in different places in Australia, the UK and then Spain where I still reside today.
    My other interests include languages, reading, music, art, nature and animals. With 17 I participated in a voluntary service for environmental protection over the course of 6 months. I have been interested in environmentalism and self-sustainability ever since and am curious about eco-projects.

    I have worked in different fields in the last couple of years.
    I have a lot of experience in Hospitality and Tourism, working as a receptionist, kitchen porter and waitress for many years. What I love about tourism is that you get to meet so many different people from all over the world.
    Aside from that I have worked in animal care since I was a teenager. I have experience working with domesticated animals such as cows, horses, donkeys, sheep, goats and so on. I'm an animal lover and really enjoy this type of work! I also love working with kids, I worked as a Nanny and later on as a teacher. I teach German and English as a foreign language. I have a CELTA certificate and have worked in 2 different schools in Spain.

    If you have any questions about me let me know! I'm happy to send you my CV or references from former employers.

    I'm looking forward to hearing from you! :)
