My name is Mav, I am 18 years old, and I have recently graduated High School in Buffalo, New York. I am taking a gap year before attending university, and WWOOF appealed to me because I love traveling. I have always wanted to come to Australia because my parents lived in Perth in the 80s, and my dad has never stopped talked about how wonderful this country and its people are. I have a deep appreciation for nature and love spending my time outside. I really enjoy meeting new people, hearing about their lives, and learning about their cultures and foods. I am excited to be in Australia and can’t wait to see where these next 6 months will take me.
Why I joined WWOOF
I joined WWOOF because I enjoy meeting new people and seeing new places. I have always loved and appreciated the environment, and I am really excited to be learning sustainable and organic practices. I have heard some wonderful things about the WWOOF community from friends and family who have wwoofed in the past. Overall, this seems to be a great fit for me.
