Ma prochaine destination :Vancouver Island, Canada Voir tout
I come from Yorkshire in England and am in Canada for a two year working holiday visa. For the last year I have been living on Vancouver Island working in a group home for children with disabilites. I have enjoyed my time on the island and now would like to experience some other locations in Canada before my visa ends.
I love mountains, wilderness, making friends, meeting locals and discovering hidden gems, particularly quirky and unusual places. My hobbies include hiking, cycling, swimming, reading, board games, and taking photos in abandoned buildings.
I am a non smoker and don't have any dietary requirements.

Quelles sont vos compétences ?
I have a Psychology Degree, and my most of my paid jobs have involved working with people in some capacity. I have worked as a stop smoking advisor and a support worker in mental health hosptials and in the community, and have a lot of experience working with children and youth.
In New Zealand I spent 6 months supporting a lady with a severe head injury who lived rurally on a large plot of land. Here I helped with many tasks maintaining the property, including animal care, maintaining an apricot orchard, mowing the lawn, weeding, making compost, planting seeds, harvesting fruit and veg, cleaning, shopping, helping with meal planning and cooking.
I have done quite a few wwoofing/help exchange roles in New Zealand and Australia. I have worked in several hostels helping out with housekeeping and cleaning and worked as a kitchen hand and housekeeper in a rural motel. I have also spent time helping in various family homes on help exchange projects, doing a variety of tasks including baby sitting, gardening, cooking, sanding and painting.
On my arrival in Canada I did a workaway for 3 months at a cidery, helping with apple picking and pressing, daily testing of the cider for sugar and PH, and doing various gardening, mulching and leaf blowing tasks as needed around the property.
I am less good at fixing/building things and doing tasks where I am likely to encounter large spiders!
