Belize, Guatemala, Mexico
03/01/2019 - 20/07/2019
I am an enthusiastic traveller and volunteer. My goal when I travel is to delve deeper into the culture and community of a place, and to give my time for environmental and social causes that I care about.
I am completing a Baachelor degree, majoring in Environmental Humanities.
I am currently studying in Mexico for a semester exchange program until May 2019, and plan through Mexico and Central America until July.
Some highlights of my work and volunteer experiences while travelling have been:
Workaway with a German family in the forest, looking after their animals and activities with their home-schooled children.
Group trip to Cambodia to build a house in a rural village
Volunteering with an indigenous community in central Australia
Agricultural volunteering in Guatemala
Worked in a police holding cell in Peru for abandoned, abused and neglected children.
I am very passionate about the environment, in both practical conservation and in advocacy. My future definitely lies in environmental protection. I have learned a lot about people, cultures and the world in my volunteering adventures so far, and can't wait to gain more out of my experiences with Workaway in the future!
I am open to all new experiences while I travel. I do not need luxurious accomodation and am happy to engage in any reasonable work. I look forward to connecting with future hosts :)
