à la maison
Hi there, my name is Ella!
I am open-minded, reliable, responsible and never shy away from hard, hands-on work.
I have just finished my Sixth form (high school) doing the International Baccalaureate course in Oxford, UK. I am taking a gap year before attending university to study (BA) Geography in the UK. I hope to use the upcoming year to explore, gain new skills as well as revisit those that have been on hold due to the pandemic.
I love to spend time outdoors and contribute whatever I can as well as learn from the people who I hope to meet through Workaway.
Having grown up in South Africa before moving to the UK I have gained much from experiencing the cultural dynamics and shift and would love to add and exchange perspectives. In South Africa, I thrived especially in the outdoors and with all sizes of animals. I was fortunate to begin horse riding 10 years ago and be given the opportunity to own two horses, who I cared for, trained and competed on. I have been around animals such as rabbits, dogs, cats and horses as well as young children my whole life. I would be so grateful to be back in the company of horses and farm life as I am a country girl at heart!
I have signed up for Workaway in order to widen and deepen my experience of countries through interacting with locals and internationals alike. I am aspiring to do some solo travel when it is a viable option.
I thoroughly enjoy a physical challenge which led me to join the Combined Cadets Forces (CCF) where we received our First Aid training along with other practical skills. I have played competitive hockey, swimming and gymming for most of my life and I also have some experience with Rugby, Cricket and Tennis.
I have also taken an interest in photography and is a skill I hope to hone on my travels and potentially use in promoting or advertising my Workaway travels.
When I am not exploring, I am very often in the kitchen baking and cooking (I am currently working on exploring South-East Asian cuisine). I often find myself crocheting and attempting some form of DIY in my spare time (All of these hobbies make for a lot of fun-filled hours whilst Babysitting too!)
I have a lot of experience in taking care of animals as I have helped out at farms for a few years. I have also recently learnt more about gardening.
All in all, I am a fast learner and will always do my best to meet your expectations.
* I am currently studying/practising for my driver's licence which I aim to have before the end of the year (2021)
Plus de détails sur les langues qui m'intéressent
I would love to develop my Italian! I am open to teaching its basics as well as teaching English.
I'm always open to new experiences and would like to share my knowledge and hopefully learn something new from my hosts. I enjoy helping genuine people and causes and I thrive on hard work as I find it exceptionally rewarding.
