  • Description

    Hello, my name is Sarah.
    Born and raised in Berlin, Germany, I'm quite short and with a positive attitude I don't need a lot of space or much to be happy. I adapt fast to new situations and people and make my home everywhere I go. On my way I hope to find places where people are putting there dreams into action, to be inspired and learn from their ideas and struggle.
    To finance my travels I started working and gaining experience in several jobs such as babysitting, cashier, barkeeping, waitress in a café. Doing my trips I helped out in a few hostels with different kind of things.
    Since I always enjoyed practical work and a passion for wood runs in my family I became a carpenter. In the german apprenticeship system you absolve a three year training that combines practice and theoretical studies and is seen as a proper degree. Since then I collected experience in all directions of woodworking such as construction carpentry, festival building, restauration, etc. I love my profession, it changed the way I look at every men made thing and in my personal experience everybody has something that needs fixing and I'm the woman for the job!
    I believe so far I collected quite a set of skills which make my hands useful in almost every situation and if nothing else I'm generally a nice person and people seem to like having me around.
    Beginning of 2019 I left my hometown for good and went out to see and learn what else this beautiful world has to offer.. so here I am!
