    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    Hi I am Mara, from Germany.
    I am a calm but open hearted person.
    I am 22 years old and I want to become a teacher for French and Philosophy: That's the reason why I want to come to France and improve my French language skills.

    I finished school in summer 2016 and after that I spend 9 month in New Zealand with Work&Travel. I experienced wwoofing there and was positivly surprised. So I decided to continue in my holidays. My first two stays in France was with workaway: near Nîmes and near Nancy. I spend wonderful weeks wit the families. "Living" french and speaking helped me a lot for my study. That's why I decided to come back this summer, hopefully.

    My workaway - jobs included painting a house, gardening and helping in the household as well as cleaning and tidying in a Lodge, as well as babysitting.
    I experienced, that wwoofing is a wonderful way of get to know life and people in a country.

    Ten years I am dancing "cheerdance"already. It developped out of cheerleading, but without shouting and building pyramides. In my old dance club I was part of the coach team for the teenager girls. Now I give workouts at uni for the other students.
    During vacations I traveled a lot with my mum, I enjoyed learning about other lifes/cultures and loved to see different landscapes.

    I am looking forward to challenge myself in farm work or other activities and improve my language skills in French!
