  • Description

    We are Emma and Rasmus, two swedes with an ambition to get new work experiences. We are both students back home – English and Swedish teacher in Linköping (Rasmus) and sociotechnical systems engineering in Uppsala (Emma) – and right now we have taken a year off travelling through America. We have been out since october and mostly spent time in Patagonia but now we're heading north.

    We have been a couple since 5 years and together we like to spend time in nature (skiing, hiking), going to concerts and travel to new places. We like to cook food – mostly Swedish and Asian dishes – and enjoy a glass of wine during. We are both happy, friendly persons with open minds to everything we are able to help out with.

  • What skills do you have?

    I have been studying the teacher program for 4 years which leaves me 1 year before graduating. I have in recent years worked part time as a swedish teacher for refugees and summer break with disabled teenagers. Before that I worked in a tool store, in a warehouse and at a hostel. I have studied four years of Spanish in high school and during this Journey I'm trying to pick up what I've forgotten.

    Other skills I posess are more general – I know how to use a saw and driller, how to paint a house and I speak very basic spanish. I am a very service-minded guy and I'm good at working with other people.

    I have been studying an engineering program called Sociotechnical systems (STS) for 3 years of a total 5. The programme is interdisciplinary and combines science and technology with studies in humanities and social science.

    I have spent a year in Shanghai studying Mandarin and half a year in Brighton studying English. My work experience involves working with people – caretaking at an elderly home and also with customers in a clothes store and at a zoo. Though I did spend the previous summer at a large wood factory. Other skills I posses involves house painting, gardening, creative solutions and an ability to quickly learn and adapt to new kind of work.
