Bio: 
My name is Andre Marius Halgryn. I am 21 years old, & was born into the bustling city of Johannesburg. I was born with a burning passion in my heart for the betterment of mankind. I graduated from Stellenbosch University in 2015 with a BA Law degree, with Psychology as my major. I am currently studying a 2 year postgraduate degree in law at Stellenbosch. My subjects entailed (among other things)- Community Psychology, Child Developement, Social Psychology, mental illness psychology, Behaviourism, Psychoanalitic education, English, philosophy & a lot of legal subjects. I am willing to send my full academic history if requested. My dream is to truly create a truly better life for the generations after me. I have always felt an inherent yearning to help the meek- especially children through dynamic learning & interactive education. I am a very approachable, kind-hearted man, & do not discriminate against people on any basis. I am 1,94m tall, white & have a strong physical & mental physique. I am also fully bilingual in English & Afrikaans. I feel that I would not be able to start working permanently in a law firm, before I have not given back to those in need on our beautiful planet. I am very enthusiastic about learning about Eastern cultures, & would also like to experience the rich diversity of the world!
Volunteering Experience: 
I have had the privilege of volunteering for a group called Children of Fire in Johannesburg. They handle children with severe 3rd degree burn wounds, & try to teach these wonderful children how to successfully integrate in normal society. The educational style that we used was based on human intimacy through touch, schoolyard physical games, reading, & teaching them how to communicate. Furthermore, we were all expected to act like role models for the kids, as they all lived in a dangerous neighborhood with little to no positive reinforcement. It was an eye-opening experience for me to be able to help children that have to much love to give, & they created a need in me to continue helping others.
Education: 
I am qualified in a BA Law degree, with Psychology as my major.
Occupation: 
Student.
Other Skills:
