Hello, my name is Mary-Lou and I'm from Berlin, Germany.
Currently, I live in Scotland as an exchange student at the University of Edinburgh; I'm studying special needs education and English to become a teacher.
I enjoy interesting conversations, roaming in beautiful landscapes, and nearly any kind of music.
Generally, I'm eager to learn about languages, different cultures and new skills - some of the main reasons, why I registered on workaway.
As far as cooking is concerned, I know the basics, love baking and am good at cutting vegetables and onions.
I'm also not afraid of household chores and actually enjoy doing the laundry.
For the last 5+ years I've been living in shared flats or on my own, and my flatmates say that I'm quite uncomplicated and pragmatic - probably because I keep doing their dishes :) .
Although I tried, I haven't established any seriously fixed daily routine yet, so I'll easily adapt to yours.
I hope to see you soon,
I babysit since I'm 13 years old and have also been a chaperone at several children's camps.
Due to my studies, I gained two months working experience in teaching school classes.
I also worked as a waitress and at a gas station and always got along with the guests nicely.
As I grew up living in the same house as my grandparents, I used to help them in the garden
and after initial instructions I'm doing alright.
We also had two cats and I've been doing equestrian sport, so I feel comfortable to look after animals.
While working at a NGO in Russia for two years (long gap year to do voluntary work),
I mainly took care of older people, including help with the cleaning, long conversations and plenty of meals and tea.
I always like to improve, so I'm ready to learn something new.
