Hey! I am Maël, a young French guy. I just ended my studies and I want to discover the world before entering the professional world. I am wondering about the way I want to live later, that’s why I would like to workaway: to experience different ways of life, to open my mind and to let my thoughts matured.
I grew up in a small village in the countryside with my family. It was surrounded by nature and I loved it. I am looking forward finding again this kind of atmosphere in Latin America. And to practice Spanish :)
I am concerned about environment that’s why I am mostly looking for workaways with sustainable projects such as organic farming or bioconstruction for example. I would love to learn new techniques.
My friends say I am an easy to live person and for sure I am ready to help and very voluntary. I already did a workaway in Scotland when I was 16 with the website HelpX, it was a great experience and I am excited to start again in Latin America!
I would say I am very voluntary, resourceful and I learn quick so I can help with many things:
I can do manual work (I particularly like working with wood). I can help with gardening: I am used to it thanks to the family garden with flowers, vegetables, hens and the sheep. I am athletic and ready for physical works. I can design websites. I can cook. I like to do all that imply creativity or nature and I love to make projects come true: that’s kind of my entrepreneurship fibre.
I studied engineering applied to environment such as bio fuels production or water treatment plant design. I am also very interested in climate change and how to live in a sustainable way. I would love to help with these topics if needed :)
My English level is very good: I spent 6 months in Norway speaking English. I learnt Spanish at school for many years, I can have a talk, but I would like to improve my level and become fluent.
I love photography: I would like to write kind of a photo report at the issue of my trip.
