I am a 21 year old student from Ireland. I study mathematics in University College Dublin.
I love adventure. I want to get out and experience the world, to see new places and learn new skills. I see workaways as the perfect way to do this. As a student,they give me the unique opportunity to travel without needing much money, while facilitating meeting lots of different people. I am excited to learn new languages, ways of life and pick up skills along the way.
I joined the mountaineering club in my first year in college. Through the club I have met so many wonderful, interesting people from all over the world. I got into rock climbing and hiking and I have found my love for the outdoors has grown and grown. An ideal workaway for me would involve lots of time outside while allowing me to enjoy climbing and hiking in the area.
Having lived in a residential area my whole life, and in the city for the past three years, I am desperate to get away from the 'concrete jungle' and to live in an environment which is more inclusive of nature, and free (as much as possible) from the pulls and stresses of modern society. I have seen my ideas and values grow and develop in the past couple of years and I am excited to see where they go next. I am especially curious to see how much I can (or want to) pursue a low waste/impact lifestyle.
I have heard amazing stories of experiences of my friends with Workaway, and it is something I have wanted to do for a while. I am looking forward to creating my own stories.
I study mathematics in University College Dublin (UCD), and have developed strong numerical and problem solving skills. I love learning new skills.
I have experience volunteering on the committee for the UCD mountaineering club, both as treasurer and now, captain. I kept the accounts in order, organised events and helped to involve new members in activities. I developed strong communication and organisational skills. I enjoyed working as part of a team and contributing to a great club.
I am good at adapting to new challenges and I am always looking to push myself.
I love cooking, generally I prepare vegetarian meals for myself and friends.
I play piano and guitar. I have some experience with computer programming mostly as part of my degree in the python language. I am an experienced rock climber and hiker.
More details about my language interests
I would like to become fluent in French and Spanish. I love both of these languages and have been learning them on and off for several years.
