Hello, I'm Nora and currently I am travelling Central America.
I just finished volunteering for more than a month at a wonderful dog shelter in San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas. So, I am ready for new work experiences and looking forward to working with animals if possible!
In Germany I used to be a teacher for English, Italian and Ethics, so I am very communicative, organized and social. But since the classroom is too small, I wish to gather some great experiences in the actual world. Which means that I am thrilled to learn new things, extending my horizon and giving something back to the community. I am a fast learner and interested in nature. I have work experience in restaurants and as a fitness/dance instructor (I don't have a teacher certificate for Yoga, but I can give Yoga classes in German and English). I also have worked on several farms, harvesting and taking care of chickens, dogs, alpakas, sheep, rabbits and cats. Since I am a precise and clean person (a typical German), I can also help with the house hold. I just recently got a 30-hour certificate on Thai Massage, so I would like to practice that, too.
If you speak Spanish slowly, I am able to understand and learn the language (because it is very similar to Italian).
I am looking forward to great experiences!
