My name is Milena and I am 22 years old. I have just finished my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Christchurch, New Zealand. It took four years of hard work but I am so happy to have achieved this. As my degree shows, I am a very creative person who is committed to and excited by doing things differently. I am also very organised and know how to use many different computer programs (eg. InDesign and Illustrator) to create digital designs.
I am currently learning how to be an English teacher by completing a 180 Hour TEFL Course online. I hope to have the opportunity to volunteer my language teaching skills at a school or a family's home in Italy and experience the Italian culture in an authentic way. In exchange I would love to improve my Italian and share my own story and culture.
I grew up in New Zealand but I was born in Germany. My family moved to New Zealand in 2008 for a more relaxed life full of nature and community. Therefore, I speak both English and German fluently and have a full understanding of two unique cultures. This experience has made me adaptable and empathetic and I am very excited to immerse myself in Italy as well.
I am a kind person who loves to make people feel included and supported, as I have always looked out for my three younger siblings at home. I also love to learn and I am always trying to improve my skills and knowledge through reading and experience. My favourite things to learn about are history, art and language.
