Curious. Open. Friendly. Approachable. Warm. Driven. Assertive. I am an extroverted introvert and love to engage with people, which is what draws me to travelling. I love to ask questions and to learn.
For the past 5 years I have worked as a primary school teacher, working with children in early childhood and primary settings (0 to 12 years old). The valuable skills I have gained from this are:
- excellent communication
- leadership and management
- oratory skills
I am travelling to immerse myself in new experiences. I thrive on building new friendships, meeting new people from all walks of life and seeing the world from a new perspective. That is, after all, the best way to develop empathy and to broaden your mind. I am particularly interested in the following:
- permaculture & viticulture
- community / eco-village living
- animal welfare
- charity and NGO work
Volunteering for the homeless.
Looking after pets (dogs and cats).
Basic gardening skills (planting, weeding).
Organising and coordinating events.
Basic photography and video editing.
Special dietary requirements
I eat a mostly vegetarian or pescatarian diet.
