  • Description

    Hi!! :) I am Manuela Verdejo and I’m 24 years old. I’m a medicine student at the Universidad de Valparaiso, Chile.
    I’m Chilean-Dutch and have experience living in different countries: I lived 4 years in the Netherlands and I did a school exchange in Germany. I can speak Spanish, English, German and Dutch... and learnt Italian while doing a workaway there!
    I love the experience of living in another country, to learn about a different culture while helping a family, with for example babysitting! I have an 19 year old and a 3 year old brother, so I have experience with children.
    I had an amazing experience in Italy as an au pair (3 months), in Switzerland (1 month) and in the Netherlands (2 months). I have done workaways in France, Sicily, Poland, Sweden, Spain and Germany too!
    I like studying medicine, but it is very demanding, that’s why I decided to take a break to do other things like traveling, getting to know people from different cultures, making friends and learning a new language (or improving the ones I already know)!

    COVID: I am fully vaccinated (Pfizer) !!

  • What else ...

    I´m an active person, I love to run, go every day for a walk and like hiking, cycling.. I want to learn new things, now I would love to learn how to ski!!
    I like to cook, specially sweet things, and I would love to learn how to make dishes from other countries.
    I think the beach is one of my favorite places. To do long walks by the sea, watching the sunset... But after being in beautiful places in Switzerland, I started to love the mountains and the snow :)
