Hi I’m Sophie, 22 from Derbyshire, England.
I am currently living in Halle and volunteering at Hort Bunte Welt. I graduated from the London School of Economics last year, 2015, studying Social Policy and Politics. Since then I have volunteered with VSO for 3 months in Tanzania, worked as a baker, travelled round South East Asia, and worked in an office in London doing admin. Typical ‘Gap Yah’ I guess.
I decided to volunteer with the Red Cross as I want to work in International Development and the charity sector, plus it has given me the opportunity to live in another country and learn a new language, German.
Outside of work I run, sing in a gospel choir, and I honestly love spending time with my dogs curled up on the sofa reading or binge watching TV, my current show is Supernatural.
I look forward to my year in Halle; finding out more about German culture and learning the language, with the added bonus of furthering my career in the 3rd Sector.
