  • Description

    Hey there, I'm Sin-Mei and from the UK.
    I'm on a career break to enjoy life and learn new things. it's as simple as that. I haven't decided what to do after my break or when I will work again but for now I just want to enrich my life, help others and have fun along the way. If I can get some hiking in that will be a bonus.
    I have experience in lots of different things and happy to help with anything.
    I regularly exercise so I can do any labour intensive work or otherwise. I renovated my house a few years ago so have experience with basic jobs like painting, sanding etc. With that I can do basic gardening as well such as mowing the lawn, weeding, trimming hedges etc.
    Housekeeping jobs like cleaning, changing bed linen, help with cooking I would be very happy to do.
    Being a qualified trainer I can also help with English practice if needed.
    I also love animals, especially dogs so I can help with walks, animal care, feeding etc.
    I'm very organised, responsible, clean and tidy. My background is in food so I have a great appreciation for it and healthy eating so anything to do with food will appeal to me but my biggest passion is the outdoors and hiking. Alongside that I am well travelled - I have been to USA, Canada, Costa Rica, Norway, Morocco, Tanzania and many more countries.
    I want to enjoy the time I have with the hosts so it would be very nice if it would feel like being part of a family. I may not know how to do everything but I am willing to learn and I work hard.
    I'm very excited in what I will get involved in with Workaway and what inspiration comes along!! :)
