  • Description

    Hello, we are a young couple from Switzerland and we would describe ourselves as open-minded. We look forward to future encounters with great people and further experiences on our travels. We would be happy to tell you a little more about us.
    Mathias: In the summer of 2018 I completed my studies in Business Administration (Bachelor). Before that, but also during my studies, I always worked, mainly in the office in the financial sector. So I know quite a lot about computers and economies. During my time as deputy team leader, I was also able to gain experience in training and developing employees. I grew up on a farm and later worked in the construction industry for several months. Therefore I also know how to use my Hands.
    I am an active sportsman and was strongly involved in a club until my studies. On the one hand, I helped out at events, on the other as a junior trainer for three years. I like to spend my free time with family and friends, in nature and I like to do different sports (jogging, hiking, cycling, etc.). I speak German and English fluently, in French I can communicate and talk.
    Linda: In 2018 I completed my bachelor education as a social worker. During my studies I had the opportunity to deepen my understanding of different problems of human life during two internships. I was able to gain further professional experience at Amnesty International, which is why I am particularly interested in human rights issues. Prior to this training I was able to gain 15 months of volunteer experience in Latin America and India. My vocational training as a businesswoman still helps me today to take care of administrative matters and also to include an economic perspective in social matters. In my spare time I like to try out new things and I spend a lot of time outdoors. I like sports and go jogging, snowboarding and climbing or try my hand at yoga and meditation. I speak fluent German, French, Spanish and English and would like to learn more languages while travelling or pass on my knowledge.
    We both are interested in learning new things about countrys, cultures, the local people and to make new job experiences.
