  • Description


    I'm Helmi a 22 year-old university student born in Finland, studying in Scotland, currently travelling in Europe after finishing an Erasmus exchange in La Réunion. In the meantime I've also lived around Europe in Italy, France and Greece.

    I would describe myself as enthusiastic girl with a thirst for knowledge with a drive to meet everyone and go everywhere. I love diversity and meeting new people and hearing their stories. Different cultures, traditions and languages intrigue me endlessly though currently I am especially motivated to take my French closer to fluency.

    I want to learn how to live to respect our nature in the same way as I adore it. Fundamentally I have very little need for anything, I love simple life - spending my days outdoors or exploring cities. I also enjoy expressing myself through arts of dance, music..
    I like to have a positive outlook on life and for me the journey is always worthwhile when shared with others.

  • What skills do you have?

    I have a lot experience in customer service eg. working in an amusement park selling products, working in a surfcenter in a surfshop and helping to run the surfhouse, working with small children and children with special needs etc. I have a good variety of skills and I am happy to help with cleaning or organizing, cooking, running an office .. you name it I surely can learn it.

    I can teach English or basics of French (Finnish of course too if someone dares to take up the challenge)

    I am also very tall and strong so heavylifting is no issue, when it comes to building stuff I have no experience but again can learn fast and always up for new projects!

    Can also give violin or ukulele lessons if you provide the instruments and allow me a few days to regain my tunes.
