My Name is Sissy,
I´m an adventurous, honest, warm hearted girl, eager to explore new cultures and regions and wants to be more active through watersports.
I have been travelling around the globe for quite some time; currently I´m a freelancer and working as a photo- and videographer. My last Workaway experience was in Sri Lanka and since then I cant stop thinking about going abroad for my next project. Richt now I´m in beautiful Portugal.
Very much of interest is the possibilty to live sustainable, to have the opportunity to do some watersports, and to learn more about Yoga. Since one year I´m absolutly fascinated with surfing :)
I would like to share my skills, happiness and joy! My aim is to work on something together with people from all over the world in order to support good ideas - especially projects that take care of our planet, the ocean or the people who live on it. I like to create new things and help building up new projects that improve the communication between people, to make the world a better place. Sounds a bit dramatic but its true :D
I love to be active in the nature whenever there is a possibility - to do sports, to explore new places, and to meet wonderful people along the ways. I have been working in different environments and have been already volunteering abroad.
For one year I did an EVS in an NGO in Greece, and was working together with six other volunteers and supoorted the local Ythe local community and Youth Cetre and promoted the Biotourism in the Cultural Triangle if Albania / Greece / Macedonia.
After my studies and my voluntary service I found a job which allowed me to travel and work. As a Video Operator and Photographer I had the chance to see places like Norway, Spitzbergen, Iceland, England, Ireland, the whole Mediterranean Sea, Oman, VAE, Egypt, Jordanian, the Caribbean, Azores and many more.
In my free time I love to take photographs, explore new cuisines and cook great meals, do handicrafts and spend, of course, lots of time with family and friends. I always loved to dance and did a classical education, thats why I started contemporary dance again. At the moment I want to learn more about yoga, meditation and to achieve a better level at waveriding.

If you are looking for someone creative, I can help with taking pictures and videos since this is my professional job. But I can also make the best bruschetta and vegetarian lasagne :)
I care a lot about the environment and the right ethical treatment of animals, so I´m not scared to get my hands dirty while building up an eco house or cleaning cats houses. All in all, I´m quite flexible.
