I am 22 years old from Northern Illinois and I'm about to embark on a gap year! I am very excited to meet new people and experience the world. I have been in school since the dawn of time so I am excited to do something different. I love being helpful and connecting with people. I am an introvert so I like my alone time, but when I am with people I try to be present and engaged because I love to hear people's stories and learn about their lives. I also like to laugh and make others laugh. People will describe my humor as really hit or miss, but hopefully it's a hit for you.
I studied biology and chemistry for my undergraduate degree. I was thinking about going to medical school for a very long time but I could just never bring myself to fully commit. Thinking about the fact that I might have to stay in one place and study my behind off for 8+ more years was becoming less and less appealing to me. The solitude of quarantine has taught me that much. Now I am going to nursing school starting in January of 2021! (Less schooling and more time to pursue other interests? Heck yes!)
I play piano, violin, and sometimes guitar. I also sing (in the shower). I am a hopeless romantic so I love dramatic movies and TV shows that are filled with romance. I hope to be a foster parent one day, and I'd love to learn how to cut/color hair and produce my own music.
Gardening: I worked in a greenhouse taking care of research plants for 2 years.
I am interested in childcare though my only experience is volunteering at an elementary school after-school program.
Even though on this website my destination is the US, I would love to fly out to where you are if you would be open to having me.
