When I returned home I finish high school, of course I did exceptionally well in English.

After graduating from high school I worked for half a year, then I did an EVS - European Voluntary Service - for 6 months in Ankara, Turkey.

That was before things went crazy over there...I worked in a primary school as an English and German teacher and as a clown, (yes really) in a hospital for children with chronic long term diseases. 

 

Back home I started studying physics at the Technical University in Vienna.  Then I met my darling boyfriend Tobias.

Physics didn't last long though. I moved to Graz to do a BA in Transcultural Communications with English and Turkish as my foreign languages.

After graduation I came back to Upper Austria and moved in with Tobias.  We live in a small village next to his mum and his grandparents.


I currently work for a NGO called Volkshife, wher I work with refugees.  Manly from Afghanistan, Syria, Iran and Chechen.  I am also a yoga teacher.

In September 2017, I will start an organic farming school and I am hoping to start a small farm on our 13 acres of land. I know 13 acres amounts to nothing according to Australian standards, but it is big enough to work as a part time farmer.


I have also had some people from down under visit me, which was very nice. 

Without exaggeration I can say that the year I spent in Corowa made me a more mature human being and had an effect on my life choices.

 

When I was 16, it was a cool fun year, after my teenage years I realized what profound effect that year has had.

 

So, thank you,

 

Anna
