  • Description

    Hello there!

    My name is Laufey Sverrisdóttir (tough one I know but I promise I'm easier to digest than my name) I grew up in the beautiful country of Iceland but have spent the last three years studying in Spain.

    In my all to biased opinion I would describe myself as a genuine, positive and happy person. I'm usually in the search for the next adventure, or doing my best to work on mind and body. I'm a very hard worker, even by scandinavian standards, I'm resourceful and diligent.

    I'm a business administration student, and although I love what I do, I've decided to tap out of internships this summer and rather focus on traveling and living. I want to find inspiration in places and people, contributing to communities and exploring alternative lifestyles.

    My Hobbies include yoga, board sports, reading and poetry. I adore spending time in nature and just being outside in general.

    I would love the opportunity to work with good people, in a beautiful place, somewhere where I can make connection and feel enriched by the experience.

  • More details about your skills

    I've been and done this and that throughout life. And accumulated a number of skills.

    Firstly I'm fluent in three languages, Icelandic, English and Spanish and very able and willing to teach any one of them.

    As I'm currently a business student I do possess skills in such subjects, all from social media marketing to financial ratios etc etc. Although I'd prefer to find opportunities where I spend less time in front of a screen and more time active and in nature.

    I've worked with children on multiple occasion all from teaching
    languages to afterschool programs, I absolutely adore working with children and always make great connection with kids at any age.

    I grew up around dogs and horses and would love to find opportunities where I'd be surrounded by animals again.

    I was a waitress for many years so hospitality and customer service are second nature to me, I've also got intermediate bartending skills so I can make the most classic cocktails like a whiskey sour and old fashioned.

    I've previously worked as a tour guide and translator in Spain, as well as provided guidance to expats in Spain.

    Most importantly I'm a fast learner and eager to accumulate more skills.
