  • Description

    Hi, I'm Yannick. I am currently on my gap year, after finishing high school in Nairobi, Kenya. I am adventurous, social, I love sports, and love to meet new people.
    I was born in the Netherlands, but early on I moved to England, and shortly after we moved to Kenya, where I have lived most of my life. Growing up abroad gave me a love for travelling and seeing new places, and that is exactly what I intend to do on my Gap year. I think a Gap year is a great opportunity to see the world and learn so much, about yourself and other cultures.

  • More details about your skills

    I have worked at several restaurants as a waiter, serving food and drinks, and taking up orders.
    I have also volunteered at a hostel in Amsterdam for three months, where I made food, served food, did lots of cleaning, and worked as a receptionist.
    We had a big garden with lots of animals (dogs, tortoises, fish, monkeys) so I know the basics of gardening and of animal care. I am more than happy to learn new skills, whether in the garden, in construction, painting, etc.
    I am equally fluent in Dutch and English, and speak basic French.
