Ireland, United Kingdom
Hi, my name is Maria and I am from Spain and l live in Barcelona.
I am a student and I have just finished high school.
I am a hard-working, active and motivated person. I am also environmentally aware.
I enjoy working with people, taking part in group work, but I’m also happy to work alone. My favourite place to work is outdoors.
In my free time I usually read and practise yoga on a regular basis, but what I like most is photography with my pinhole camera.
I love nature, plants and animals. I’m used to spending some weeks during vacations with my grandparents at a rural house.
I decided to join this voluntary service because I am looking forward to having new experiences.
I am eager to participate in all the tasks, even in those that I have never done before because I’m a quick learner and I am persistent, conscientious and adaptable.
I live on a little boat with my father so I have become very independent because my father works abroad in a NGO dealing with refugees.
I can cook and do housework. I mostly eat vegetarian and ecological food. I try to avoid creating non organic waste.
This year I did a research project at school about the effects of the war in Syria. My interest arose from my father’s work in Libya for “Open Arms”.

As I am interested in art , I usually go to museums, circus and exhibitions.
I love independent cinema and I go to the art house cinema once time a week.
I am also interested in agriculture, that’s why I did a little experiment in my mum's house: I grew, lettuces , tomatoes, peppers, and aubergines. In some flower pot.
