    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    Hi my name is Vinnie, and I'm a 23 year old medical student on a 1 year break from university in London, and in need of doing something completely new!

    I've enjoyed my last 5 years at university, but now I am taking a year out in Japan and I am looking to learn some new practical skills, such as farming, woodwork or gardening. However, I am open to any suggestions, and looking forward to meeting new people in the process!

    Before heading off to Japan I have a couple of months between now and November knocking around the UK, and I am looking for some UK based placements to get me going on this year out!

    Following this, I will be working a ski season in Nozawa Onsen from November till March, then from April till August I'm looking for some work away job placements based in Japan.

    This will be my first year with Workaway, and I'm really looking forward to making the most of it. From previous jobs such as Pharmacy Assistant, Shop Assistant, music teacher, and my studies in London hospitals, I have realised I very much enjoy putting myself in new environments and learning from those around me.

    In a nutshell, I'm big believer in self improvement, and I hope I can do this with other like minded people around me.
