Hey, my name is Plym, I am from Amsterdam and just finished high school. Since I was young I always loved animals. I made my whole family vegetarian when I was only 8 years old, because I always saw them as another being and not as some food. The ones I especially love are dogs and cats. So when I was 10 I adopted my own stray dog from Spain. She also lived a hard life on the streets but was rescued by a shelter. It was the best gift someone could ever give me. Right now I am in my gap year and I saw working in a dog shelter as the best thing I could do this year, because then you make an impact in the world for so many animals. I always wanted to do something good for this world and especially for the ones who need help. Thats why I saw workaway and the many possibilities you have with it as the best organisation I could aply to.
I always get motivation from working towards an idealistic goal and really making a difference in the world. That makes me happy. Next to hiking in the Mountains and playing sports.

Quelles sont vos compétences ?
Because I just only turned 18, I don't have any other education then high school, but I did finish high school on the highest level in the Netherlands (VWO) with pretty good grades. I can learn good and I am good at printing things in my mind. Next to that I am a fast learner and will easily adopt to a new environment. When its necessary i can work very hard for something with my exams for example.
I can speak Dutch fluently (duh) and my English is also pretty good. I also learned some Spanish at my high school, but I would love to become good at it.
I already have working experience for NGOs, right now I am working for an environmental NGO, it is called Milieudefensie. I work in Sales and my job is to convince people on the street to become a member of this organisation. To succeed in this you need to be able to make a connection with random people on the street and convince them so much to become a member. This requires a lot of social skills and the ability to be good at talking. I also learned a lot here about what brings people over the edge to donate money to an organisation. In this job you are also put under a lot of pressure so I can handle that pretty good.
