About me

A peoples person who is very observant and assesses situations in their entirety and pays close attention to detail.
I enjoy fine wine and dining, travel, being outdoors and getting dirty, visits to the beach and using my hands creatively. My guilty pleasures are street food and cakes.
I love being out of my comfort zone and opening myself to new experiences and cultures as I believe it shapes and builds character.
I speak 5 languages and am well versed in English (which is my mother tongue), Afrikaans, an intermediate German speaker (with 2 years experience at university) and a basic French and isiXhosa speaker. I herefore enjoy teaching English, but moreover learning new languages.

Preferred location

An avid young traveller, looking to experience new cultures and adventures
