  • Description

    My name is Thane Engen. I am 25 years old and I have a Bachelor's degree in International Relations from the University of Utah. I also have a TESOL certificate and have experience teaching English. I have stayed in a multitude of hostels throughout Europe and Australia since I was 18. From January-May 2017, I studied abroad in San Sebastián, Spain, where I honed my Spanish speaking skills. 3 years ago, I volunteered at a hostel in Mérida, MX. I am highly fascinated with Latin American culture and wish to continue to better my Spanish. I am introspective, yet can be very outgoing when I want to. Wherever my life takes me, I know that I will be a great addition to your team!

  • What else ...

    Three years ago, I volunteered for at a lovely hostel in Mérida, MX, through Workaway. I was there for 1 month and absolutely loved it. I've since been back in the United States working but I want to go back and see parts of Mexico & Latin America I have yet to see.
