  • Description

    Hi, my name is Miriam. I'm an Austrian citizen but just finished a degree in English and Creative Writing in Aberdeen, Scotland and feel like now would be the perfect time to travel. I went to school in Luxemburg for nine years and then moved back to Vienna. I'd love to go on new adventures and learn of cultures, countries and their people. Most of all I'd like to work with animals. I've worked on multiple farms before and got nine years worth of horseriding experience.
    I love being outside and working hard for something exciting. As long as I'm needed and am able to help, I'm happy. I'm a passionate reader, I love to write and in my freetime I enjoy playing sports, especially team sports.
    Since my entire family is very involved in the music scene in Vienna, I too cherish music. I play the french horn and am always drawn to pianos.

  • What skills do you have?

    I love animals and have helped out at various farms, where I learned to take care of cows, pigs, chickens, cats and dogs.
    I myself own a dog and a cat and have had other pets such as rabbits and a hamster.
    In addition, I've have been riding horses for over nine years.
    As I have lived and worked on farms before I have come across all sorts of other jobs that need to be done, other than animal care. I've helped with haying and other field work, chopping wood, housekeeping and cleaning as well as selling farm goods.
    I'm a relaibale worker whether in a team or on my own. I love to work with people and have expirience with children in particular. Apart from babysitting, I've worked at a nursery school in South Africa and helped kids with special needs in Vienna.
    I've spent many years working as a waitress and am therefore used to stressful situations and know how to render a good service to customers.
