  • Description

    I am a British 20 year-old who loves adventure and new experiences. I am capable, efficient and am currently studying at Durham University, and on my university 'Year Abroad' to improve my languages. I am determined to improve skills in languages because I study them at university (French, Italian and Russian) and I have a passion for the art, literature and history of a culture. I have already done five Workaway experiences in South-Western France (x2), and Italy (x2) and Russia. All of which I thoroughly enjoyed and was given 5 star ratings.

    I am a very creative person who knits, sews and draws in my free time, I love reading, walking, galleries and museums (archaeology being a particular interest). I set up an art society at university and run weekly classes. I enjoy cooking with my mum and using fresh, organic ingredients and to share food as a family I find important.

    I also adore animals and have chickens and dogs. Being outside, walking and gardening are also particular favourite activities of mine because I love to be alone and outside. It makes me calm and I feel to have a time to reflect alone is very important.

    I am known for being a positive and jolly force and have had numerous jobs working for the local community: I was the Events Manager and the Coordinator of a charity fashion show at my university, I work in a university bar, I have done farm work, and many other outdoor jobs, and so hard work does not faze me! I have also volunteered at a Sexual Health clinic and at Sotheby's, an auctioning house in London.

  • What else ...

    I have a passion for languages and I want to improve my speaking skills. In the classroom, I am good at reading and writing, now I want to build my confidence and speak it! I would also like to experience new things and have independence. I find being exposed to different cultures very stimulating and what life is about. I long to be fluent in many languages and connect to many people across the world.
