  • Description

    I live in Scotland and I have recently graduated with a degree in Psychology from the University of Edinburgh. I enjoy being outdoors and often spend my time gardening and hiking around the Scottish highlands.
    I am very keen to travel to see more of the world and broaden my experiences. I am a sociable person and I look forward to making new friends and meeting new and interesting people.
    I am interested in volunteering as it allows me to experience new cultures, meet new people and learn new skills; while also being useful to those who live there. In particular, I am interested in wellness and mental health. I want to learn more about therapeutic techniques particularly: yoga, mindfulness and meditation; and improve my own practice in these areas. I am also very fond of Spanish and I want to one day be fluent.
