    I love to be around animals, especially horses. I like to cook and bake and experiment with different ingredients. I would also like to learn about building and repairing quite anything :)

  • Description

    Hey there!
    My name is Tonja. I am currently studying occupational therapy, but am also keen to see the world whenever I have holidays or some time off. I was already able to travel a bit as a Workawayer and it was the best time I ever had. I am looking forward to enjoy it even more!

    About me:
    I am currently 20 years old and live in Switzerland. My hobbies are riding, climbing and dancing. Riding is something which accompanied me kind of through my whole life. At the moment I'm supporting a couple with their three horses, chickens, goats, turtles, cats, dog and guinnea pigs. I have learnt a lot through horses and would love to help with animals during my workaway experience.
    I would describe myself as a positive and enthusiastic person. When it comes to work I am reliable and doing the best I can with the knowledge I have. Sometimes I tend to be a perfectionist, but I am looking forward to learn a lot of new things. I am also a communicative person, which is why I am hoping to have a kindly atmosphere around me and also people who like to sit together in the evening and chat from time to time.

  • More details about your skills

    In my childhood I loved to craft and sew and still do it whenever I have enough time to do all the ideas I have in mind. During my work as a nurse I improved my abilities to be around every type of human even more. It is something that I enjoy a lot. I also trained my organisation and cleaning skills.
    As I am helping the couple with their little farm, I did all kind of support such as fencing, building, gardening, crafting, feeding and animal care in general.
    I once did a vegan month and loved it. I did a lot of cooking myself and still like to experiment with flavors and different ingredients. The results are most often pretty good.
