  • Descrição

    Hi, I am a bubbly outspoken person with a passion for living life. I am a TEFL English teacher, an artist, an adventurer. I am a quick learner, am willing to get my hands dirty, try my best and work hard!
    I would much rather not be on my phone, and instead have a one to one personal conversation.
    I am flexible, I love helping others, trying new things, teaching, dancing, finding eco solutions for our planet and working together for peace. I am big on environmentally friendly solutions, being as zero waste as possible and trying recycling everything! I hate waste. I want learn how to produce and use natural materials - Live along side nature- Learning and giving back to it.

    My parents are world travelers and so I come from a multi-cultured background- I grew up in Malawi, Africa, have travelled all over from a young age, like Egypt, India, Belgium, Turkey, Thailand, Zambia etc. and I became an outdoor instructor aged 19. Through this I have learnt how to appreciate the little things, like food, housing and healthcare.

    It's now my turn and I'm ready to explore and experience more!
    I would love to come and really connect with the nature of the jungle and see it's true colours.

    I've had previous experience in volunteering many times, such as teaching in a nursery school and high school, as a swim coach, working in a hospital, sailing on a big sailing boat, creating the digital newsletters at a peace conference volunteering at a farm stay and botanical garden, and volunteering at a beauty salon.

    I was lucky enough to be born into a family that seeks adventure and adrenaline so when asked 'what motivates you, I'd say, " I have 2 eyes, 2 ears, 2 arms and 2 legs, so I'm going to use them. I'm going to live my life every day to the fullest and grasp every opportunity I can, because I a lot of people don't have that".

    I've pushed my limits and I can't wait to keep pushing them.
    I'm double vaccinated against Covid 19 ;)

  • Quais são suas habilidades?

    I consider myself as a very interactive person always trying my hardest and willing to helping those in need. At school I was an accomplished athlete, holding full colours in rugby, football and swimming, I am a qualified lifeguard and the youngest advanced Scuba diver in Malawi. In my gap year I have remained physically fit and healthy by attending a 12 month Outdoor
    Instructor’s course in Scotland. The global youth movement demanding climate action inspired me and gave me confidence to act. In July 2019, two friends and I entered and made it to the semi-finals of the GLOBAL GOALS competition with our ‘3 Bin Battle’. This included educating our fellow students on plastic pollution, using recycled materials to create ‘Plastic Only Bins’ and setting up a sustainable network where we collaborated with the NGO ‘Truss Group’ to turn the collected plastic into bricks.
    (One of the photos bellow is a mural on a city wall about consumerism and unmanaged waste. )

    By performing in yearly school musicals, setting up 2 clubs, co-directing a show and leading younger students into synchronized swimming routines, I grew in confidence, becoming a school prefect and Head of House. I gained leadership and organizational skills as I had to encourage and teach young students on a daily basis. Although this required a lot of dedication and constant research, I loved challenging myself and learning from others’ experiences and visions.

    I've studied in depth Biology, art, chemistry and maths. I would like to persue a career in medicine in the future and for now want to travel, create art, try lots of different foods, integrate myself a fully as possible into the language and culture and learn how to live sustainably.

    Knowing that others are less fortunate then me encourages me to take every opportunity. I am open minded to anything ( yes I have eaten caterpillars before....)

    I am undoubtedly curious, always asking questions and learning and look forward to, caring for others and making a positive change in the world.
