Hello, my name is Roop, I am 26 years of age, I am currently living in Bulgaria and come from a town called Washington that is situated in the north east of the UK. I am a determined and driven individual who has always been committed to achieving my maximum potential, whether it is academic or work related, as I love learning! I have lived, worked and studied across the whole of the north east my entire life and decided to spread my wings beyond the UK; "the world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page".
I enjoy reading (mainly books on psychology/history/art/nature/animals). I Love dance and music; my ears are always open for new sounds.
Recently, I began to draw again after many years and I've been getting back into the swing of things with chalk, pencil/pen and paint.
Sports is another interest of mine, whether its playing or watching. I can happily get involved in pretty much any game involving a ball. I was part of my school's football teams from the age of 8 till i was 17 as well as being involved in basketball, cricket and athletics.
I love learning about different cultures, languages and peoples. I enjoy meeting new people from around the world, engaging with cultures and immersing myself in new and different ways of life. This is the main reason I am wanting to travel. After graduating my bachelors I have been working in sales and communication to build on my skill sets as well as saving to travel. I hope to grow and become a well rounded individual after seeing more of the world and how nature works.
I have very strong interpersonal and communication skills developed through a variety of sports and working in telecommunications. Through working with food, retail and sales I have acquired many valuable skills such as self motivation and self awareness as these roles have required cooperative as well as independent effort to achieve goals.
I have very strong organisational skills as most of my job roles have required the completion of tasks by set deadlines within team and solitary based circumstances.
I am compassionate and strong willed, which are two qualities that I will carry throughout life as I am also a people pleaser.
I spent 3 months volunteering at an orchid in Greece, which has allowed me to expand my knowledge and experience with permaculture and animal care also.
Punjabi (Eastern): Fluent
More details about my language interests

I love food, i was born into vegetarianism; although I had started to eat meat, I have recently reverted back to vegetarian due to my love for animals and care for all living things. I have been introduced to many other amazing cuisines over the last 7 years especially, as well as always being able to enjoy Indian cooking at home. Learning to cook is another skill i hope to develop on top of the north Indian recipes passed down to me.
I enjoy camping and hiking also, being in the midst of nature and its beauty is one of the most calming and relaxing places to be.
Even from a very young age, I have always been a very 'hands on' individual, anything that revolves around the outdoors or anything in general that is keeping me active, I want to be involved in. For this reason I have been able to pick up many basic skills growing up, such as cooking, cleaning, sowing/stitching as well as helping my parents with any DIY, gardening or building tasks around the house.
I am a huge animal lover, growing up I had a beautiful German shepherd that my family adopted, a cockatoo and 10 rabbits!
