My name is Sam and I come from Slovakia (a small country located in central Europe). I have already done volunteering via workaway last summer in 2019 in a hostel in Georgia and it was an amazing experience. I learnt so much from it, it expanded my views and thus I look forward to doing volunteering/travelling in August 2020.
I fluently speak English as I studied at an American High School in NY from 2017 till 2018. I am a real extrovert and especially interested in meeting new people. Forging a close bond with somebody I don't know for a long time is easy for me. I am honest and enjoyable (my friends say that). I believe that I have a great amount of humour hidden in me.
Regarding my interests, I enjoy computer science. I am planning to continue with my studies at university in the UK where I am interested in computer science and business studies. I am a good planner which I think is a valuable skill when travelling. Furthermore, I like politics (global as well as domestic and European) and discussing current affairs especially in regions in the Middle East. That helps me to understand others and extend my views. I am also quite a fan of history and literature, I love reading and I play the guitar. Frankly, I do enjoy doing anything that has some impact on me or on a community
I love sports! I used to play football (soccer) in the states in the CHSAA. I have done swimming, karate, tennis, and floorball. Nowadays I am mainly running and playing squash. I also like winter sports and extreme sports (would like to do a wingsuit flying certification one day)
I registered here so I could not only check volunteering options but also maybe find a travel buddy since most of my friends are not interested in flying that far away and going beyond your comfort zone.
organizing, planning, decision-making, problem-solving, application programming, website scripting
I have successfully completed the IELTS exam which displays my high-level proficiency in English. Besides teaching English, I am interested in teaching the pupils computer science, programming principles or website programming and can coach the hosts how to cope with website promoting or social marketing.
