  • Description

    Hoi!

    I'm a 25 year old from Switzerland with a BA in Socialpedagogy and Special Education. After 5 years in the field, I want to explore new terrain.

    Doing physical work outside is what I enjoy most - in any kind of weather. From building, to gardening, and animal care. I'd love to learn more about welding and building straw bale houses!

    Since October 2019, I've had great learning experiences in Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, England and Norway, and met many interesting people from all walks of life. In exchanging ideas and viewpoints, we can all benefit from each other.

    My main incentive is to build up skills in all kinds of areas, so I'm keen to try out any given task.
