Meet Robin!

4 Comments

Robin Burkhardt is an Interviewer and host in New York!

What is your Servas background? In 1980 I traveled around the world as a Servas traveler.  Unforgettable!

How long you have been an interviewer? Almost 10 years

Where have you traveled? Recently to Texas.

What is one great memory you have from Servas (as a traveler, host, or interviewer)? Meeting an applicant from Paterson, NJ, who’d been saved from the Holocaust as a baby.

What hobbies do you enjoy? Walking , my animals, mushrooms

What is one of your favorite quotes? Having eyes, we see not.

Why are you involved with Servas, and why do you think that Servas is important? Any way for people to mix as humans can soften the wall that others (news, political entities, religions) may put up.  I like the informality of Servas and its worldwide availability.

  2. Hi Robin! This is a wonderful introduction to you. I am trying to find an interviewer to be a SERVAS traveler this year. The interviewer finder on the US SERVAS website is not working. Where in NY are you based and would be be available this month (July 2013) to do an interview? Thank you so much for your time. I hope to hear from you soon.
