  • Description

    Philosophy graduate figuring out what to do with my life. :)

    I grew up on Scotland's east coast in a tiny village of 600 people before moving to the city to attend the University of Edinburgh. Since then, I've taken every opportunity to travel, and I spent the third year of my studies in Bergen, Norway.

    I'm a cheerful, playful person, but I always stay calm, sensible and respectful. I like being active – I was in my university's gymnastics club (only novice level though!) and recently started learning figure skating. I also enjoy climbing and hiking. Indoors I'm always happy to chill somewhere cosy and read a book or watch a film. I'm interested in languages and always love hearing people's stories.

  • More details about your skills

    I'm a native English speaker (and people tell me my accent is easy to understand), so I can always help with English. I also speak Norwegian at an advanced level, but I don't consider myself fully fluent yet.

    For families/individuals – I can help with household chores, act as a big sister to children, be a conversational companion to adults.

    For hostels/organisations/businesses – I can help with photography/videography, creating online content, organising events.

    I'm interested in learning about gardening and DIY but have very little experience.

    And I can teach you all about Scotland! :)
