I´m Irene, I'm 27 years old and I live In Vitoria-Gasteiz, a beautiful city in the Basque Country (Spain). I´m a hard-working, optimistic, responsible and sociable person who is looking forward to working as a volunteer.
STUDIES AND CAREER
I studied English Phililogy and after that I did a Master for being a Secondary School teacher. For the last four years I've working as a Spanish and English teacher in different institutes. In the past I worked in an academy and I gave private lessons too. I really love my job and working with teenagers, I get on well with them and is a rewarding experience for me.
HOBBIES AND INTERESTS
I love reading, drawing, spending time with my friends, travelling, meeting new people and learning about other cultures with respect. I like doing sports: going to the gym, doing yoga, going for a walk, swimming... Besides, in April I'm going to learn how to make soaps and makeup ! I'm really excited about it :)
ABOUT BEEING A VOLUNTEER
I want to force myself to talk in English all the time, as I would like to take the Proficiency exam this year. In addition, I would like to meet new people; two years ago I was a workawayer on a farm in the UK and I had the pleasure of spending time with really sweet and nice girls from Japan, Wales and Germany.
I would also want to learn new things, like it happened to me in the farm; I had never worked in an orchard before and now, after what I learned, I'm groing some vegetables in my terrace.
