  • Description


    My name is Monique and I was born in Saigon, Vietnam, but raised in Germany since I was 7 years old. I grew up in a big christian home with 5 siblings and I have in total 10 nieces and nephews. Sometimes it can be quite loud when we all come together, but I wouldn't missed one of them.

    I have an education as a hotel specialist and more than 10 years of hotel experiences (4 and 5 stars hotels), especially at the reception where I worked at least as front office manager with the responsibility for a team of 7 employees. I‘ve changed the industry and I worked for a finance company before I decided in springs 2014 to take a break to fulfil my dream of traveling.
    In this Trip I had lots of high standing moments and I've met many wonderful travellers even amazing people and their culture. This journey impressed me much and I'm deeply grateful that I was able to see and experienced it.
    After a 2 years trip through South Pacific (Australia, New Zealand, the Fiji islands) and SEA I returned home and I decided to make a chance in my life. So I started to study again.
    Currently I live and study full time Business Management in Dortmund and work part time.

    Workaway give me a chance to get to know other culture and their people better.

    I'm a very open-minded and flexibly person. I have a passion for food and I enjoy cooking.
