We are currently
Our names are Maximilian Friedberger and Griffin Thompson. We are two close friends from South Carolina, United States. We are both current students in college pursuing our dreams. Maximilian is currently studying Financial Management at Clemson University Honors College. Griffin is currently studying public health at Yale University to become a global epidemiologist.
We decided to join workaway in order to dive into the surroundings and cultures of new places across the world. Were both interested in the academic possibilities and learning opportunities that traveling to new places brings.
Griffin: When traveling I am interested in immersing myself in both the culture and community that we visit. I would love to learn more about the history, nature, and any other fun and intellectually curious opportunities that arise. In particular, I am dying to learn how to cook new foods and experience the beauty of nature abroad. Personally, I plan to conduct academic research and participate in seminars and mentorship opportunities while abroad, focusing on the health systems and epidemiological programs in Europe.
Maximilian: I have always enjoyed traveling and learning about new cultures throughout my life. I have spent a lot of my childhood throughout Europe and this has inspired me to continue finding myself in new environments. Through Workaway, I aspire to expose myself to different cultures and lifestyles that I have never experienced. In addition, I would also love to try new foods, explore the outdoors, and meet new people!
