  • Description

    Hello to you out there,

    my name is Hannes and I currently study "Environmental Engineering and Developement" in Germany.
    I will start an exchange year at a University in Tena, Ecuador in November and would like to volunteer and improve my Spanish till then.
    About 22 years ago I was born as the second of three brothers. Back than our parents owned a little farm in the middle of Germany surrounded by forest. Later on things took a different turn and we moved to a small town nearby. But growing up with animals and nature around me was great.
    After I had finished high school in 2017 I wanted to experience some alternative ways of living.
    So I spent 2 years volunteering, hitchhiking, working and traveling in several countries.
    Afterwards I went back to "school" and now, after I almost finished my 4th semester at Uni, I am preparing my exchange year in Ecuador.

    I am interested in sustainable agriculture, green building and offgrid energy supply and much more.
    Before I start my internship in November I would like to get my hands dirty again and get better at Spanish.
    Most of my previous jobs were connected to building and farming, so naturally I think I can be a good help in these fields. But I also worked as a waiter/ cashier or a truck driver before. Also I enjoy cooking and served up to ten people at previous workaways. And recently I worked as a maths tutor at Uni.

    Anyways I am really up for new experiences, I want to see how you live and take walk on your side.
    Feel free to contact me if you think, you can use my hand or you have any questions.

    All the best and
    "bis bald" from Germany :)
