    Description

    I am a nineteen year old girl and I live with my Mom, Dad, older sister (at university in New York), and very cute dog. My family and I live in a suburban town, which is twenty minutes by car/forty minutes with public transportation to the city of Boston. I graduated from high school in June of 2016 and I am currently taking a gap year before attending nursing school in September of 2017. My passions include, child care, animal care, art and crafts (collage, embroidery, and knitting), photography, baking/cooking, and being outdoors!

    I signed up for workaway because one of my passions is to experience new cultures and share my own culture through traveling. I was lucky to have met an amazing girl and her family from Italy! Her and her brother came to stay at my home for for two weeks during November of 2016. Then I visited her and her family at their home for two weeks during January of 2017. I am so grateful to have met her and her family because it has been an incredible experience to exchange culture. I would love to have more of these experiences, which is why I am searching for a person around the age of nineteen that would also be open to a cultural exchange.

    My family and I wouldn't expect for you to work much during your stay because hopefully I would be able to visit you in the future! We just expect you to clean up after yourself and help walk the dog. In addition, it would be great for you to help us learn the basics of your language and teach us how to prepare traditional dishes of your country.

    Most importantly, we want you to be part of our family and make wonderful memories 😊
