Mi experiencia en Swanky ha sido genial, el lugar es espectacular porque aparte del hostel dentro de las mismas instalaciones hay un bar, está en una buena ubicación y muchos sitios por conocer y relajarse. Han sido MUY comprensivos en permitirnos quedar y ayudar, en intercambio con algunas tareas mientras todo lo del Covid-19 se aquieta un poco. Lo recomiendo y estoy muy agradecida con ellos por permitirme pasar este tiempo de tanta incertidumbre aquí, disfrutando de las instalaciones. Gracias a todos :-)

Moreto & Caffeto ha sido una gran experiencia para mi, la recomiendo total :-) Alina, Lili y Hector han sido muy amables durante todo mi tiempo aquí, siempre están pendientes de lo que uno necesita y sugiriendo planes para hacer en Sophia :-) y sus alrededores. De ves en cuando todo nos vamos de fiesta también es genial ;-) Con respecto a los horarios estos son muy claros y tal como se describían al aplicar al voluntariado, todas las semanas se hace un horario donde uno sabe cuales serán sus turnos y los días que se descansan a la semana. Pase un gran tiempo aquí, Mil gracias :-)

So great to have Vivi! We had spoken earlier this year and were not able to host her, I told her to please get back in touch later in the year, and I was so happy that she did! She instantly became a core part of our exchange team. And beyond the everyday stuff, she sat with our new communications officer and shared her knowledge of Social Media marketing, what luck! Thank you Vivi - and good luck with all of the future adventures, I hope we find a way to keep you in Germany! Julianne

Este tiempo en Coconat, ha sido espectacular. He conocido personas maravillosas con las que he compartido grandes momentos. Todo el equipo es super amable y las tareas que tienes que desarrollar son muy claras y organizadas. Aquí son muy respetuosos con los tiempos que trabajas y ademas nos consienten mucho como voluntarios, recomiendo mucho la experiencia para aquellas personas que quieren estar en contacto con la naturaleza, pasar un tiempo agradable con otros y para si mismo. :-)

Empecé el viaje cerca de un año y ha sido una gran experiencia, inicialmente pensé que solo iba a ser un país y hasta ahora van tres en la lista :-) . Al inicio no estaba muy segura de cómo iba a ser todo, mujer viajando sola, pero en cada uno de los lugares que he estado me he sentido segura y cómoda. Realmente vale mucho la pena, te da la oportunidad de conocerte a ti mismo, otras personas, lenguajes, costumbres y culturas, de una manera completamente diferente a que si lo haces tan solo algunos días como viajero regular. Además a través del voluntariado ahorras una buena cantidad de dinero mientras conoces, es la combinación perfecta :-) Recomiendo la experiencia y los lugares que he estado, si tienes alguna duda, escríbeme para contarte como ha sido todo esta gran aventura de viajar porque .... VIAJAR ES VIVIR ;-)

Background

Education

I get my degree like business administrator when I finished I Got scholarship with university to go exchange in Barcelona, Spain.
There I studied a Master program in management of industrial companies, It helped me understand which is the economy there and what strategies in marketing, production and accounting are relevant to companies
I made a personal process to be coach and therapist and it let me know and make some changes in my own live, there I have learned some tools in order to help others to be coherent with himself and enjoy today
I have been studying English during four years and I am fluent in English. right now I am learning German . I believe that have the opportunity to know a new language it gives me the possibility to know a lot of people and cultures

Work Experience

Trough all my work experience I have learned about different kind of enterprises and it makes me a very important knowledge to develop my skills in a lot of things like administrative, analyst, financial and marketing services.
I worked too in ONG who help children and it was great because I share time with them and I learnt a lot of things about their care and healthy food

Travel Experience

I was lucky enough to go to Barcelona and New york out of my country and I spent more or less five or six months in each city. During my time there I learnt a lot about these wonderful cities.
When I was in BCN I worked in a company called Genebre like Finance and Accounting Analist position and I took advantage during the weekends to travel around Europe I visited Italy, Belgium, German and France.
All this experience help me to understand other countries and culture, personally I grow a lot because I have make my own decisions and assume the responsibility.
My experience in New York was great, because I visited in the main places there like: central park, the empire state, building time square and statue of liberty. This experience was great because I met a lot of people of diferent countries and I improved my level of English because most of the time I had to communícate with others in this language
Right now I want to go to Germany because it's a very interesting culture and place that I would like to visit and know more
I meeting for all the reason for I have mentioned, I really look forward to traveling more and learning about new places and people
