I’m a 23 year old male who has worked in a special needs school for two years prior to coming to Australia. Before that, I studied psychology at university. I am a positive, friendly and approachable person who loves to work hard in the job at hand. I have always been an outdoorsy person and I love to swim, cycle and see wildlife!
Why I joined WWOOF
I joined WWOOF to see more of Australia and its true landscape outside of the cities. I would also love to see the agricultural industry and help give something back to Australia as a country. I feel like this line of work would suite me perfectly and I am very excited to get started.
Languages I speak
Skills and trades: I have grown my own vegetables at home so I know the basics of growing and harvesting crops. Furthermore, for three years, I worked as a site support officer for a school where I painted, did various handiwork and worked outdoors for most of the time. For two years, I worked in a special needs school which taught me to always have a positive mindset, to pay attention to detail and to always try my hardest in the job at hand.
