Experience:

I am a voluntary teamer in the YMCA in Hanover. There I plan games, programs and activities for children camps that will take 1-2 weeks. The children are of different ages between 8-15 years old (depending on the camp) and we are staying on a camp ground near our home town. I have also been a tutor for new pupils at our school. I have been their contact person especially for their first days to get used to the new environment. We went on a class trip together.

Motivation:

I love to spend time with children and work with them. In Norway I hope to see how Norwegian people live and get to know their culture, learn their language and what differences there are compared to Germany. I spent several holidays in this beautiful and fascinating country and fell in love with it.

Hobbies:

I love reading books, play sketches or cook with friends. Furthermore I am interested in photography, the nature, biology and sports. At least twice a week I go horse riding or just spend time with Conner, the horse I am taking care of.
