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 the natural world and I want to learn more about about native flora and fauna and how to protect and cultivate it.
