Linn from Germany living in the Philippines

Hi, Iā€™m Linn! :sun_with_face:

I am from Cologne in Germany. After finishing school back at home I traveled through Asia for half a year, and finally decided to move to a small island in the Philippines in October 2019. Here I am living my good life: spending days with my dog by the beach and surfing. :wink::surfing_woman:t4:

Well, to be honest most of the time I am working for a project I founded with a friend of mine to support the locals during the pandemic - many of them are suffering due to the loss of tourism caused by Covid. We collect donations from all over the world for rice sponsorships, to organise fun activities for the kids and to offer educational support and healthy meals.

Whilst teaching the kids here on the island, I rediscovered my passion for it! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: I used to tutor students in cologne and volunteered in a school in Nepal last year - and now I cannot wait to start tutoring people from different backgrounds online! :woman_teacher:t2:

Besides German (my mother tongue) and English, I speak some Spanish and Italian - which I wish I would practice more :face_with_monocle: ā€¦ and Iā€™m currently learning Siargaonon, which is the local language on this island.

I hope to meet you soon in a Live Session!
Best,

Linn :star_struck:
