  • Description

    Hi everyone, my name is Mélina, 25, and i'm from Switzerland.
    I'm a student and I try to combine this with my passion for traveling. The first place I've been to by myself was Madagascar, Africa, where I went when I was 19 years old, for 3 months. I have done two different volunteering projects, like building a water fountain in the countryside and volunteering in an Orphanage.
    Then I spent 3 months to USA too (the same year as the Madagascar trip), where I took english lesson.
    I am pretty open-minded and always happy to meet new people, discover new cultures etc. I am sure Workaway is the best way to combine these things.
    I've done a workaway experience in Senegal, right before covid, in January and February 2020, it was amazing !!!!
    My native language is french and I speak English and German as well. I've learnt Spanish and I am able to talk but I would love to improve it!!!
    Thank you for reading and I hope it will convince you that I would be a good volunteer :)
