  • Description

    Hi there!
    My name is Jessica, I just graduated high school and I am now starting my gap year in which I’m thriving to travel and learn about other cultures as well as learn other languages. I decided to take this year off before going to uni because I knew that nothing would make me as happy and help me gain experience, as travelling and getting to know people and their life’s.

    Places I’d love to travel to:
    - Spain
    - UK
    - Canada
    - The Netherlands

    More Info :
    Since my dad grew up in Spain I’ve always wanted to live there and finally really learn Spanish, because I sadly never fully learned the language. I admire the Spanish culture with its people, the food and the nature which always made me not wanting to leave the country when visiting.
    *Update* Because of Covid I am not planning to go to Spain this year!
    I also plan on studying in the Netherlands and thats why I would love to spend some time and experience the culture aswell!
    Technically I am open to experience any country. These are just some ideas and preferences I initially had :)
    My big goal is to eventually spend about half a year working and traveling in Canada, together with my twin sister.
    My best friends would probably describe me as a very positive, open and sweet person since I am very empathetic and I truly care about people and their feelings and wishes.

  • More details about your skills

    As I already mentioned I just graduated high school and I’ve been working in gastronomy and costumer service part time for years which taught me working with costumers/ people from all around the world.
    I fluently speak both German and English ( I am still trying to get better at it tho!) but only bits and pieces of Spanish ( which is why I want to learn it)
    I am great with kids since I love to spend time with my little cousins and play games, go outside to play or simply read them stories or cook and bake for / with them.
