    Good Workawayer

  • My status


  • Description

    Hi, I am Giliam from the Netherlands. I get really happy from being social and interacting with new people in all kinds of circumstances. I also am really enthousiastic to learn new cultures and languages. I am a very curious person and I hope to learn everything someone can tell or teach me. I have no real preference in the subject. In other words, I am interested in almost every subject there is :).
    Currently, I am working on my postgraduate physics and astronomy thesis. I want some nature-like work distraction from the daily research I have to do on my programming based thesis. I like being outside and I get real satisfaction out of farm and garden work. I also absolutely love connecting with animals and caring for them. I am no vegetarian, but I rarely eat meat and I am interested in getting to know new delicious vegetarian or vegan foods.

  • More details about your skills

    My expertise is being very flexible and adjusting to many new and unexpecting situations. I have some experience with garden work. Most of my knowledge of farm work is theoretical, but I am keen to put it in practice. I have studied and teached physics and astronomy for the past 5 years, so I really like to analyse situations and try to solve them analytically. I also really like to create enthousiasm for the Physics subject for those who are interested :). I am good with animals, but I want to get better. I am a good and concious driver. I am social and open to new experiences. Lastly, I am really interested in (life-)stories of other people, hence I am a good listener (at least according to my friends).
