  • Description

    Hi, I am Hana from the Czech Republic and I am 28 years old.

    I have a passion for animals, I was studying exotic animals at the Czech University of Life Sciences and during my studies, I was also working as a volunteer in a cat shelter in Prague for five years. I was caring for cats in the shelter, raising funds for projects (crowdfunding), assisting in creating the website and coordinating events, making promotional photographs, videos and materials.

    In 2016 I got my first Working holiday visa and I spent one year in New Zealand. That was the most memorable experience. I met people from more than 28 different countries and most of them were like me, travel addict. People who don't want to live an ordinary life but they want to experience something unfamiliar and leave with new skills or knowledge.

    In New Zealand, I had an opportunity to work in three different hostels, in the Animal Sanctuary, Borzoi Kennel and also in the kiwi fruit orchard and food factory.

    Few months after I came back home from New Zealand I applied to get a Working holiday visa in Canada and I succeeded. I came to Canada in September 2018 and I spent a winter season in Banff.

    Every Wednesday I was volunteering with the organization called BanffLIFE, assisting with the Community Meals programs and I just loved it.
