I am frequently called Freddy, bred and born in Cameroon, in the south region, precisely in Zoetele on the April 29, 1989. I'm a person who likes to learn and discover new skills in order to broaden my horizons. I bring a willingness to help others. I'm an easy going person who likes to become acquainted with others, a social butterfly, a self-learner, determined and organized when I want to achieve something. I am willing to work as a volunteer as long as I gain experience because, in my opinion, the most important thing is not money, but how to use one's self experience in order to better people's life.
