I am currently
I’m Lies, 23 years old, from Belgium. I will be graduated by the end of April. From the end of May to June, I would love to travel to France and improve my French speaking. So I thought, why not improve my French while going on an adventure with Workaway?
I love the beach, meeting up with friends, and going on adventures in nature. But I also really appreciate reading a good book, playing the piano, practicing yoga and enjoying a nice dinner with a glass of wine.
I could describe myself as an easy-going person who likes to be surrounded by positive and uplifting people. I love going on adventures and stepping out of my comfort zone. I can say that I just enjoy living life and nice sunny weather! 😊

More details about your skills
I fluently speak Dutch and English. I also speak some French and German. This year I will finish my postgraduate marketing and business development. Before that, I finished my studies in bioscience engineering. I always loved to learn a lot about the nature and our planet.
I’ve been in the scouts for 15 years, and I was a group leader for 2 years. I organized the weekly activities for children and learned a lot of organizational skills. I am a hard worker, a team player and I’m not afraid of getting my hands dirty 😊.
In the past I have also been to Hawaii with Workaway and to Ghana for voluntary work. Both where incredible experiences! I also worked some years as the help of a cook in a restaurant and I did a student job in the HR department of our local hospital.
