Bio: 
Hi! Presently, I am into my third week of travelling in South east asia and as I write this am in laos. I am hoping to volunteer for an organisation who work with children in cambodia. I have 7 years exerience of working with children aged 11-17 years in a children's home back in the UK, and I was a deputy manager of a home. Specifically I worked with children who had emotional and behavioural problems. This is a job that I loved and hope to return to when I go home. I feel I have lots of skills to offer an organisation, from administration, report writing and general organisational skills, to the most important of providing a nurturing environment to the children. Lots of fun, laughter, games and creativity is essential and this I can certainly provide with ease ☺. Thanks so much for reading my profile! Many thanks, Irene
