  • Description

    Hi, I'm Miriam. I'm 21yrs old and fairly quiet - this may be one of the first things you notice about me. However, although I may not talk much (known as Selective Mutism), I can do many things and I am hard-working.
    At the moment, I'm spending a few years travelling and working before studying veterinary science (my current plan is such - it may change).
    So now I'm exploring the world, meeting people and learning about cultures, seeing how I can best help on this planet, and trying to visit all the beautiful landscapes and ecosystems! My interests: music (all - especially folk), art creative things, love all animals, enjoy taking opportunities to try new things and learn new skills, anything natural and old (natural medicine, crafts, lifestyles, culture), reading, walking (I take long walks whenever I can), fixing things, history, classic film and lots more. I have a plenty of experience volunteering. My goal is to learn to live a life of freedom and closeness to nature.

  • More details about your skills

    Animal care: particular knowledge of the healthcare and keeping of birds/poultry, also good with dogs, cats, goats, reptiles, sheep, basic horse care and ostriches. I worked for many years at my local wildlife rescue and local hen turkey sanctuary. Recently, I did some Workaways at dog shelters, an ostrich farm and farms with sheep, goats and horses.

    I have computer skills and good grammar, so I can help with websites and correcting translations to English.

    I'm hard-working, physically fit and good at taking instructions. I'll do any job, I don't mind about physical conditions. I have good general skills from working in a nursing home, on Ice Castles construction crew, and from previous Workaways eg. farm work, hospitality work. I love children and can help with babysitting.

    I like to fix things and I am quick to find a solution to basic maintenance and carpentry projects (I don't have much experience with tools - but show me once and I'll be able to make it work).

    I love being creative, so would be more than happy to help with any art or music projects!

  • What else ...

    I often lack confidence when starting a new volunteer placement or job. Working style: lots of instruction at the beginning is good - I like to know that I'm doing a job right. Once I know what to do, I am very competent and do not need supervision.
