    Super Workawayer

  • Description

    Hello, I am Saga. Born and raised in Finland, I have enjoyed travelling in many countries, and recently finished my Sociology degree in Edinburgh, Scotland, with a plan to travel more, learn more and and help people I meet any way I can.
    I am a very cheerful, easy-going life wanderer who loves people, animals, and nature. I love to create beautiful artwork, and entertain others with singing and playing the guitar. I enjoy being active especially with yoga and dancing, and am forever curious of alternative lifestyles and ways to see the world. Continuing on from my studies, I am pursuing my personal interests in Eastern philosophies, Science Communication, and exploring solutions to the ecological crisis we're living in.
    Through my artwork, I attempt to explain and visualise often complex theories and philosophical ideas, making them more accessible and enjoyable to understand.
    I am at my best when I can make other people happy and can learn new skills.
    With Workaway I am extremely keen to develop my understanding of permaculture principles and methods, and to improve my sustainable & self-sufficient living skills. I am dedicated to learn more about farm life, taking care of animals and plants in the best possible ways.

    I have taught English, worked with groups of kids, and volunteered at a Zero Waste co-operative food & skill sharing hub in Edinburgh called Shrub.
