Hi! My name is Asta Sofia, I normally just go by Asta, I am 20 years old. I am originally from Copenhagen, Denmark, where I am born and raised, however, I am currently living in Germany outside of Potsdam for a break from my normal city life, and have time to make art and expand some of my interests. I have always enjoyed being in the nature. Especially with animals who I love being around. I have spent many years riding horses, alongside having two jack russel terriers who has taught me unconditional love. Right now, I am having my second gap year after 14 straight school years, which suits me well, but I am also trying to get a sense of what a future could look like. I am very eager to meet both people and animals and very interested in learning. I am an easy learner, and always want to do my best – I prefer having a good time while working! I love humor and good conversations, either together with a beer or a coffee. That is probably me? Looking forward to meeting you! 🙂
Why I joined WWOOF
I have thought about it for a long time, because I am interested in expanding my horisont and because I have always been happier in the nature. I really want to gain experience and knowledge along the way and to meet new animals and people. Perhaps I even figure out that this is really something for me?
Languages I speak
I have just entered the sourdough world, which I am currently nerding and good results has appeared from this. I am good at cooking, I can also clean as well. I am taught a lot by my mother of both manners and about what is healthy relating to food. I come from a very organic home where my mother works with implementing better habits for Danes, such as eating organic and local. I am quite strong, I have a lot of animal experience and a big love for many animals. I know a little about caring for animals and for some vegetables.
