    Dear all,

    I am Levi, 24 years old student from Hungary, currently spending a gap year and looking forward for incredible adventures with you out there!

    When I was 16, my brother took me and we hitchhiked from Budapest to the Baltic Sea in Poland. There started everything! Ever since then I just wanted to go seeing the world. You can find me probably at a roadside hitchhiking or camping at the seaside, maybe lost in some mountains... (it did happen that I got lost, it wasn't funny :D).

    I grew up in a big FAMILY (we are 6 brothers and sisters), so I had to acquire social skills at an early age to survive :) My parents are one of the kindest people I know, so I learnt from them how to practice solidarity. In my hometown everybody knows them and we are used to people knocking at our door and asking for the help of my parents.
    All my siblings are married now and with kids, so I learnt dealing with the youngers than me already at home. Better said: my nieces and nephews taught me!
    Our grandmother (92 yo) lives with us, too, and partly it is thanks to her that sometimes I feel a bit wise in the things of life, but of course not wise enough yet... So maybe here is my chance to become somewhat wiser!

    I consider myself an open-minded person, and indeed I'm curious about our World. The main goal in my life is to learn as much as possible. And to have a good use of the things I learnt. And because of this I decided to have a gap year in my studies, as I consider NON-FORMAL EDUCATION the most efficient way of learning!

    I did WORKAWAY earlier, in 2017 in Poland, met different families and communities, amazing projects. And those experiences made me not hesitate for a single moment to start the adventures again in 2021! Let's hope covid won't be the obstacle.

    So HOW CAN I COLLABORATE in your project? Well, I would say there is almost no project I wouldn't like to assist. I'm interested in both social and ecological topics.
    - I worked several times with youth and children. I say, non-formal education for all generations!
    - I worked in a refugee program in Budapest. Met unbelievable human stories.
    - I spent one semester studying in Lima, Peru. It definitely opened my eyes for global issues and social inequality.
    - I have experience in language teaching: I taught Spanish and Hungarian for refugees.
    - helped at renovations/ maintenance. I was grown up at the countryside. There is always sg to do around the house.
    - My mother is gardener! I have some skills earned from her. I can also call her any time for traditional cooking tips!
    - I also play some HUngarian folk music. I have a shepherd flute.
