I like to get to know people by talking - that's why it's difficult for me to write about myself. I would describe myself as open-minded, low-maintenance person that is curious to find out more about life and its wonders, especially the ways of thinking and living of other people. I try to be as honest as possible. I like to experience things for the first time.
I spend most of my free time meeting people or writing in my note book.
So far my curiousity led to volunteering in a youth center and at my school for the last years, trying to give young people new social input and taking part in projects like building a playground for orphans in Romania. I was workawaying in Muscat, Oman, helping with a tourism business, and building a tree house and teaching English in remote areas of Sulawesi, Indonesia, as well as teaching English to kids and young teachers in Kampong Cham and Battambang, Cambodia. In Australia I volunteered at a pay-as-you-can restaurant called "Lentil As Anything", in New Zealand I helped an artist with his Street Arts and Photography project. In Mexico I h elped with building, children and the horses on a horse ranch. In Guatemala I gave holiday workshops for children. I also took part in several drama & theater groups. I consider myself to be good at teaching, I am a good team worker, but I can also take over a leading role. I can cook, I can clean, I'm good with kids and animals as I grew up with both. I know how to ride horses (and i love it). I worked in various bars and restaurants in service and kitchen. I am a good listener. I like to work with my brain as much as I like to use my hands.
More details about my language interests
This workawayer has indicated that they would be interested in sharing their language(s) or learning a new language. You can contact them directly to discuss this.
until my equipment gets stolen the next time, I have a camera, so I could help you with photography too.
I am looking for any kind of work, especially things I haven't done yet, new experiences and people that are willing to share their stories with me! also always looking for creative people doing or interested in any kind of arts, that might want to join my project for some time. extraordinarily happy it would make me to be able to ride horses again, because I really miss that. And I'd like to learn climbing!
