I am Sophia, 19 years old and from Freiburg, Germany. After my Highschool-GraduationI decided to travel and volunteer around the world, alone.
So now after one year I decided to head off again, to Africa. For me it is very important to see lifes in many different perspectives and I think workaway is a great opportunity to get in contact with different people from all over the world, to know their way of living and thinking , exchange cultures and shareand learn some new skills.
I am a very adventurous and active and easy going person, dont need much to be happy, the less the better:).
I love cooking and so always looking for some new recepies. Also I try to learn a little of the local language.
Always ready to do something and learn something new!

So I can adapt quite quickly and learn fast. I have done some maintanace on a farm in NewZealand, Canada, and the USA, worked in a Hostel in Indonesia, guided horsebackridings for guests in Namibia and South Africa and worked with an NGO in Uganda.
I love cooking and would like to learn and share recepies and different ways of living the culture.

And just talk to people, be open and learn something new.
