  • Description

    Hello there,
    I am a Mechatronics Engineering student from Albania.
    I love nature and my study of natural sciences ( physics, chemistry, math) has made me very interested in connecting nature and science in the best way possible.
    I am not a big adventurer, but ever since I started to let go of things I used to hang on to in my past, I started to become more and more open. Practicing Yoga has made me even more loving to life, mine and others'.
    My country is very closed and the people are completely lost in the everyday routine, so much so that they are forgetting about the destruction of nature and culture, in search of more material things. People are very upset when it comes to the economy of the country and work without meaning. This breaks my heart so much and that's why I decided I would be looking elsewhere for people who have the " luxury" (more like determination) to fight for their dreams.
    I signed up in this website so that I have the opportunity to work with people who have a goal, help them accomplish it , until I fully envision my own goals. I look forward to learning all types of different things.
    I can handle myself very well, I don't need much help and I have certain talents. I cook good food (especially when I search the internet :D), I learn very quickly. I'm very clean. Through the years, I have gathered all sorts of information and I just want to apply it in practicality.
    Hope to meet you someday! :)
    I have a lot of dreams but 1) I wish to meet David Attenborough and participate in a project of BBC Earth
    2) I hope to have my own farm in the northern mountains of Albania some day

  • More details about your skills

    Uhh...
    In high school I studied some social subjects but mostly focused on sciences. I used to really like biology and I still remember much of it.
    University - I focused on Engineering subjects, including technical drawing, AutoCad, programming and automation. I look forward to putting my theoretical knowledge to use.
    I think my university gave me a solid discipline and can-do attitude because it is very stressful, but you still have to do everything in time.

    I have participated in a lot of presentations and some projects. Also I have taken a short training in the Red Cross community about First Aid.

    I have learned a lot of foreign languages in my life.
    I have certified level C2 in English. I studied German, French, Japanese. Also in Albania we watch a lot of foreign movies so I have some communication skills in Italian, Spanish.

    I have done all sort of farm work because my grandparents live in the village and I have lived with them all summers since I was 5. I enjoy so much taking care of bees and gardens.
    I can ride a bicycle, I can swim, dance, I am 164cm and quite athletic.

    I have worked as a waitress so I have knowledge about service.
    I also have worked at a supermarket for a while so I know how to organize and be efficient.
