  • Description

    Hi! My name is Sterre, I'm 19 years old and I live with my mom and sister in Deventer, the Netherlands. After my school exams in July I would like to take a break for at least one year. I don't want to learn from books anymore, but I want to experience new countries and cultures.
    I'm really adventures, I'm open-minded, I like learning new things and I like to meet people from all over the world. When I choose to do something, I do it with all my heart and I will work hard.
    As a child I lived in a RV with my parents, we traveled all over Europe for 2 years. After that I've lived in a normal house, but right now I'm really looking forward to travel again.

  • What skills do you have?

    The past three years I've worked in a shop in the Netherlands. I really like to help costumers as good as I can. Besides that I also sailed on a big sailing ship for six weeks, across the Atlantic ocean and in the Caribbean. I've learned to sail, to clean the ship and to work together with 40 other people.
    I've also done volunteering at a local organic farm for two years. I helped with gardening and farming.
    Something else I do, is babysitting. I really like to teach young children. A few years ago I gave horseback riding lessons to children. And I've been riding horses myself for 8 years.

  • What else ...

    Last June I've graduated from high school in the Netherlands and now I would love to travel and do volunteering somewhere around the world. Two years ago I sailed for 6 weeks and I really loved it. So I would like to do something with sailing again. But I also really like to work with horses (for example on a ranch) and any other work that's outside and active. Learning an other language would be something I like to do too. I'm really adventures, I'm open-minded, I like learning new things and I like to meet people from other cultures. When I choose to do something I do it with all my heart and I will work hard.
    I can be a bit shy in the beginning of a new situation, but when I'm comfortable I'm not shy at all!
