My name is
Hey, I’m Ágústa.
I am a 21 year old girl from Reykjavík, the capital of Iceland. I just graduated from my school in Iceland, my main subjects were history and sociology, both subjects I really enjoy. Last year I traveled around South America for 8 months by myself which I absolutely loved. I feel the need to explore more different cultures so for this winter I would love to move abroad and work and live with a lovely family, learn from them and give from myself. I speak English fluently, I learned to speak Spanish on my travels, I studied German for 3 years in school so I do have a base in German although I know after learning Spanish that I am a little rusty there. I learned Danish for 7 years in school so I do understand Danish and Norwegian but I need to learn speak it. My mother tongue is Icelandic. My interests are traveling, general socialising with people, hiking, camping, biking and exploring different cultures. I have been a vegetarian and sometimes vegan for 3 years now so I could also mention animal welfare and sustainable living as one of my interests. I got my first job when I was 12 years old, carrying out the newspaper. I have been working several jobs since then, for example as a waitress, a zookeeper, a receptionist, on a repair shop and as a assistant on a home for disabled. I do have experience on babysitting since that was my income when I was smaller but I also have a baby sister so I would say I In general I’m used to children and babysitting. Not to mention I really enjoy it to. I would say that I’m an open minded person, I find it easy to get along with most people, I am reliable, and up for exploring new things!
That was my first "work" when I was younger. I did babysitting for some summers before I was able to get a job. I also have a baby sister who I have always babysitted.
