  • Profile description
  • Hello!
    My name is Mel, and I love traveling and meeting new people! I'm from Wisconsin, USA and I have ample experience with volunteering. I'm currently teaching English for a second term at a high-school in Thailand, so I can definitely help with teaching English. I'd also be happy to help with gardening, construction, or like tasks. I lift at the gym 6 days a week when I'm not actively traveling, so I can help with any heavy lifting!
