Detail of Qualification:


Myname is Erica Andersson, I am 18 and I live and study in Sweden.

Iwould like to offer my talents in languages; if you would need them,my culture, hard work and a big smile in exchange for an opportunityto work and live with you.

Mypassions in life are reading, languages, culture, nature, trainingand animals; preferably horses. My mother has had horses since I wasa kid and I have regularly helped out at the stable she runs. I rideless good than I did when I did it regularly but I intend to take afew lessons next semester to brush up on my riding skills and to alsoswitch over to wester style.

Iam now finishing the swedish equivalent of high school in about sixmonths and by then I would like to have established a connection witha horse-ranch in North America, to be able to go and work there. Ifeel a need for a break from my academic life, while still gettinguseful experience.

Experiencesaround ranch work, the service industry and general work-life are allbeneficial for my future and I would value them high. I'm used togetting dirty and working hard, I also tend to be a quick study. Iwant to work for my keep; food, roof over my head, (internet) and theoccasional trail ride, any other payment would be unnecessary. Travelaid would be widely appreciated but not a deciding factor. Since Ido this largely for the cultural and physical experience and I havepractically no connections on the entire continent I would appreciateand expect to be treated respectfully and for rules to be set outbefore my arrival.

Ifeverything goes well I would like to stay for a maximum duration of 2years. 1 is, however, more fitting for my future plans.

Iknow that it must be an amazing number of people closer at hand(without the additional stress of having to acquire a visa, which Iwould handle myself as much as possible) but I am hard working and acultural asset. Even though Swedish is my native tongue I speakEnglish effortlessly, I also speak near fluent French, a bit ofGerman, understand Norwegian and both Finnish and Danish peopleunderstand Swedish. I have several references, although my workexperience is very narrow due to my young age and the fact thatschool has been my first priority.

Ifyou are not interested but you would like to give me a chance to liveout my dream of seeing the "real" America I would bedelighted if you forwarded information and my Email to someone else,preferably someone who is trustworthy and who has the same occupationas you.
