I知 a self employed Web Designer who would be proficient with any IT related discipline.
My volunteering experiences so far range from picking olives and land clearance near Malaga, Designing a client database management system for an accommodation business in Marbella, Volunteered in a hotel just one hour outside of Granada where my tasks were varied from mixing cement, cleaning and clearing and working on a website. Then in Madrid I did a language exchange for 2 weeks teaching English but also learning Spanish at the same time which was really cool. After Madrid I travelled to Tarragona to help a guy with different jobs around his house as he was planning on moving. After Tarragona I volunteered in a hostel in Sevilla for 2 months which was a really good experience. Currently I知 just outside Malaga volunteering with Website work and other small jobs around the house.
One conclusion I have made after all my experiences and all my travelling is that I want to teach English. My language exchange was really rewarding and made me realize that this is what I want to do. So I知 in the process of doing my TEFL course. I also have managed to find a really cool opportunity teaching English in July so I知 really excited to have got that opportunity.
I知 totally up for whatever volunteering experiences come my way even if it痴 something I don稚 know how to do or feel I知 particularly suited to because in the end you never know what you might be good at or how an experience will turn out. This is why I love volunteering from the places I have seen, to the cool people I have met and to the great experiences I have had. In the end all you can do is be positive and have a good attitude and most importantly be yourself.
I speak just a little Spanish but any opportunity to learn some more is always welcome.
