Interview with Michaela Plew - achieving self development goals as a ranch volunteer

A trained homecare nurse from Germany, Mika Plew (30, Augsburg, Germany) has come to Chilcotin Holidays to improve her English and learn more about horses.

"I heard of Chilcotin Holidays through a Farmstay Agency that places volunteers in Canada. I wanted to experience the real Canadian wilderness that I had only read about and learn more about horses. These were my self development goals I wanted to achieve"
"Being a home care nurse in Germany for the past few years, I also wanted to explore the possibility of a career change. When I first arrived at the ranch, I helped worm the herd of 60 horses, repair fences, and I helped in the kitchen. I really wanted to learn how to ride western but to do this I knew I had to improve my English. With this in mind, I’ve taken on the kitchen intern position so I’ll learn more about running a wilderness lodge kitchen, and get plenty of opportunity to practice both my written and spoken English, ticking off my self development goals."
