  • Description

    Hi there! My name is Zara, I'm 21 years old and come from Sheffield, England. I am travelling in the holidays I have from university, where I study Medicine and eventually hope to become a doctor. I am an experienced traveller (I did a full year of travelling solo before university), and am no stranger to hard work and the outdoors. I love to spend time outside, and I'm an avid walker. I also love canoeing, climbing and cross country skiing. I am very practically minded, and can (try to!) turn my hand to almost any project you may have. I like vegetarian cooking/baking, and I am more than happy to help out in your kitchen. I love children, and I am experienced in childcare, having looked after my much younger sister and done tutoring and babysitting for many children as well. I've taught English in 4 different places in South East Asia, where I was teaching classes to all abilities, so I am also confident to take English classes on my own- I really enjoy it! From many previous Workaways I also have experience of gardening, construction projects and some care of animals, so I love to do projects like this too. Finally, I am a black belt in karate, and I am a qualified karate teacher. I'm really looking forward to discovering all the different cultures, landscapes and people out there, and can't wait to meet you!
