Hi, I'm Miriam. I'm a 20yrs 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.
In my life, at the moment, I'm spending a few years travelling and working before studying veterinary science (my current plan is such - it may change). And then I will enhance my veterinary skills by additionally studying some kind of alternative medicine because western medicine is…hmm….
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 of Ma Nature's beautiful landscapes and ecosystems! My interests: music is life; I do drawing and various creative things; lover of all animals; enjoy taking opportunities to try new things and learn new things; freedom of consciousness; books are better than screens (in fact, many many things are better than screens, but I still use em!); hiking is cool and I take long walks whenever I can. I have a lot of experience volunteering. I want to learn to live a life of freedom and closeness to nature. There are a lot of things I'm interested in, from history and psychology, to sustainability, God, natural medicine, music theory and climate change.

Knowledge of keeping animals: I have skills with lots of animals, although particular knowledge of the healthcare and keeping of birds/poultry. I worked, for many years, at my local wildlife rescue and local hen + turkey sanctuary. Recently, I did some Workaways at dog shelters and an ostrich farm.
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 (cleaning, laundry, kitchen work), and from previous Workaways: some farm work, experience working in hotels. I love children and can help with babysitting.
I love being creative, so would be more than happy to help with any art or music projects!
