  • Description

    I am Vera (24 years old) and I'm from Berlin city.
    I am a very cheerful, bright, empathic, energetic and open-minded person. Honesty and reliability are very important to me.

    I speak french and english fluently. My father is Russian, so I was raised bilingual.
    I'm looking for a new adventure because I want to be inspired by people, places and other cultures/way of living.

    I am an occupational therapist and am currently in the last year of Bachelor’s degree. I have also experiences as a french tutor and in general I love working with kids and young adults. I worked in many psychiatric hospitals. More see down below.

    I am very much into long distance running, dancing, yoga/stretching and home workouts. Also I am kind of a writer (poetry slams). I enjoy electronical, techno and alternative music. I love to do theatre, especially with young patients in therapy contexts as intervention.

    I love to read and inform myself about a healthy and spiritual lifestyle. I am a christian. I meditate a lot and like to take more offline times than online, because I think being online makes people more sad than happy over time; especially talking about spending hours online in social media/in front of the screen.

    My interests in psychology and the human being are big. I am a creative and non-problem-oriented thinker. I am a quick learner and can adapt to new situations and people easily. I am a very curious and interested person and love long and deep talks. If you are interested in my way of thinking and living from the little insight you've got, I think we will get along well together.

    I look for: language practice (French), cultural exchange, children care and improving my personal and therapeutic skills.

    Love hearing from you.

    I could teach you German, basics in Russian and French (if required); also in sewing with a sewing-machine. I am a tutor in French and English for children and young adults. I am good with power-point (e. g. making posters) and word.

    Currently, I am in my therapist training. I read a lot in this subject.
    I cultivate positive thoughts and appreciation of one another to contribute for a better world.

    I know a lot about healthy nutrition and experimented a lot because of my own health issues. I think I can give you some tipps. I mostly eat various salads (filling :D) myself and can prepare them.

    I am a very clean person. In my early years I already loved cleaning, because it makes me calm in some way: laundry etc. Anything you need. I live with two boys and I know how to deal with the little household problems.

    I have many experiences with children because of my own big family and the workaway families. My sister has a dog which I have seen growing up as she educated him. I have basic knowledge with animal care.

  • What else ...

    I love communicating directly what is important because anything else leads to misunderstandings and problems. If you also enjoy a direct and appreciating communication, I think we will get along well together.

    • Special dietary requirements
      If a have the possibility I cook/make and eat plantbased meals (mostly gluten-free). But I'm flexible and can switch to vegetarian. I'm vegan/vegetarian because of health conviction (especially regarding milk). I'm aware that this is a cultural experience
