About me

I have just finished four years in college studying to be a Social Care Worker. I have enjoyed my studies and have also really enjoyed the six months experience I have gained working with young people in residentaial care. At the moment I am enjoying travelling with friends, but am hoping to travel myself in September and learn more about South America, its culture and its people. I am an outgoing person and love to meet new people.

Preferred location

I am currently travelling South America with friends. We are travelling Columbia, Ecuador, Peru and Boliva together for three months. In September I hope to travel Chile, Argentina and Brazil solo. I would be interested in volunteering, teaching and learning more Spanish and culture.

Skills

I have studied Social Care Practice for four years and really enjoy working with people. I have six months experience working with young people in residential care. I have worked with young people who have emotional and behavioural difficulties and I have developed various skills from this. I am able to work well under pressure and use my inititive. I have good communication and interpersonal skills. I can form good relationships with people and have excellent listening skills. I have also done a lot of travelling and therefore can relate well and adapt to different cultures.
