I'm Merel from the Netherlands. I am a creative person and I admire other cultures and languages. The most important thing during traveling is for me learning about the local culture and the language and immersing myself into it. I studied Graphic Design, have a TEFL-certificate (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) and my dad taught me how to paint professionally. I like going outdoors and go hiking, kayaking, climbing etc.
Everywhere! The world is beautiful. At the moment I am travelling in Asia so it would be great to find something there.
I have a degree in Graphic Design. I'm experienced in designing corporate identity, packaging, illustrations, websites, advertisement and conceptual thinking.
Teaching English or Dutch:
I have a TEFL-certificate (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) and experience teaching in an elementary school in Thailand. I really enjoy teaching English!
My dad is a professional painter and he taught me everything. We worked together for 3 years. I can paint walls, window frames, doors etc. Repairing too!
As a graphic designer I of course am a creative person! I love to illustrate, to paint, to model, basically I just really love to create! I also make wooden jewellery and paint it by hand.
I love to meet new people from all over the world and I'm not afraid of speaking in front of big groups. I love talking and explaining about culture and showing people around to teach them something.
I used to have a kayak at home back in the Netherlands. So I would be very excited to do kayaking tours as well!
I really really love kids, play with them, learn from them, teach them.
I am not a smoker, don't have a drivers license, I am not a vegetarian and I have no allergies.
I'm not vegetarian but I really love vegetarian food and I wouldn't mind skipping meat at all! I absolutely don't smoke.
