I always loved spending time with children so I decided to volounteer in my local nusery school. I have been working there since January 2016 one to two times a week. Additionally to that I look after teenagers on leisures arranged by our youth church staff. Occasionally  I take care of children aged one to eight.


Seeing children developing in to individual human beings is very interesting. Being a part of that process seems very appealing to me because I can help children to get to know the world they are living in. I love bulding a relation to children, laughing with them and giving them a helping hand when they need it. Furthermore I would love to get to know a new culture through the eyes of a caring family that is as excited as I am to welcome me in their life.


Media are a very big part of my life. I love reading all cuddled up in a blanket with a cup of tea. I also love listening to music or audio books while cooking or baking. Furthermore I use media to connect with my friends who also are a big part of my free time. We like to spend time together by just talking, going to concerts or doing sport together.
