I am originally from Switzerland but have been living in the USA, Costa Rica, Peru, and the Netherlands over the past few years. I am about to graduate from Leiden University (the Netherlands) with a BA in International Studies with Latin America as my world region of focus. I guess you can already tell I have itchy feet.
I have used workaway in the past during my solo travel adventures throughout Latin America. I made many unforgettable experiences helping out on an agroecological farm in Colombia and bartending at a hostel in Mancora, Peru. During that time, I also picked up Spanish and am now at a level where I feel confident starting my master's in gender studies in Madrid in the coming semester. But until then, I want to break out of my daily routine "locked" into my room, studying in front of my computer. By doing workaway, I would like to contribute to positive change and at the same time get to know the culture and people behind it on a deeper level.
I'm a very open and easy-going person. I love meeting people from all over the world and expanding my worldwide network of friends. I always feel the urge to travel and I constantly daydreaming about the next places I want to visit. I enjoy laughing and having good conversations and I am always up for the next adventure.
Like a stereotypical Swiss person, I love skiing and the mountains and I'm also addicted to chocolate. Other than that I play the Cello, do old school black and white analog photography and also digital photography. I'm into all sorts of water sports like scuba diving, live guarding, surfing, snorkeling, swimming etc. I really enjoy listening to music and dance Salsa and other Latin dances. I'm an AFS & TECHO volunteer and have lead many camps for foreign exchange students back in Switzerland. Last but not least, I like cooking and of course, also eating ;) And of course, I'm always up for trying out new things.
I'd love to help you with your project and bring some positive change into the world.
I can do all sorts of things and I'm always ready to learn new things. I can take and edit pictures for you, set up a website, manage your social media and do promotion, work in the garden and with plants and animals, teach languages (German, Swiss German, English), cook or clean, etc.
