Moin! I am Vera, 22 years old, from Hamburg, Germany. I am studying food science at the University of Applied Sciences.
After school I've been working as an AuPair in London for a year, and in September I'll be moving to Aarhus, Denmark for an exchange semester. For me the right balance between having roots and exploring new cultures is super important! :)
I'm new to WorkAway but super thrilled to trying it out! Getting to know interesting people, having something to do, learning new skills, making great memories - all of that is what convinced me :) In the last years I've travelled through Germany and Europe I've already had a blast staying with couchsurfers, and also in my flatshare there are always guests around.
Besides cooking I enjoy reading, enjoying the sun in parks, sharing philosophies, going to festivals, doing yoga and playing guitar & ukulele (but I'm an amateur to be honest haha). My friends would describe me as harmonious, honest and cheerful!
Cooking / shopping
Help with Eco project
Help in the house
Helping with Tourists
In my AuPair job I've done all the household tasks, as well as cooking and (obviously) childcare everyday. Now, that I also study nutrition and live in my own flat with my flatmates cooking has become a great hobby and at least all my friends say that I'm not too bad at it :) My best dishes are the improvised ones!
I have also worked at a restaurant for a year.
Furthermore I'm basically just positive and motivated and look forward to achieving new skills!
My first language is German obviously, but I'm pretty fluent in English since I've lived in London for a year. In school I also learned Spanish, so I understand a bit of that too.
Special dietary requirements
I'm a vegetarian :)
