  • Description

    Hello, I am Alexandra, 42 years old.
    I have lived in Switzerland for 15 years but originally I am from Saarbrücken in Germany.

    Twenty years ago I trained to be a hairdresser but have worked as a shop assistant for many years now . However, I still do hair as a part-time job. My customers (both in the shop and when I am doing their hair) like me because I am always cheerful, friendly and I am trying everything to fulfil their wishes. At present I work in a chocolate store but before that I was assistant manager in a pet shop because animals are my passion. Our two dogs recently died and we miss them terribly. That is why I would love to work with any kind of animals during my stay in Ireland.

    In my spare time I am a singer, I play the guitar and I am learning to play the bagpipe. I also like watching movies, going to the theatre (I am especially keen on musicals :-) , I am interested in arts, in books and love meeting friends.

    When I visited Ireland three years ago, I fell in love with that stunning island, the heartwarming music, its amazing people and the lovely sheep and puffins.
    That's why I have chosen Ireland for my workaway-time.

    Looking forward to reading from you and maybe meeting you next spring.
