  • Description

    Hi everybody!
    I've been an office worker for 5 years and came to understand that it's not quite the best thing for me. I enjoy meeting new people, getting all sorts of new experiences, visiting new places and seeing people around me smile, so this workaway site turned out to be just what I needed, and I never felt sorry for leaving my steady life behind and changing everything!
    In 2014 I spent 3.5 months volunteering in the Middle East, in 2015 I traveled around Central America for 4,5 months, then stayed in USA for half a year in 2016 and another 3 months in Southeast Asia . The experience that I got was very diverse, but I enjoyed every part of it cause I can feel how enriched I am with learning so many different sides of life that I never knew before. And I'm still open and anxious to learn more!

  • What skills do you have?

    After working as an accountant, office-manager and fun-manager I know a lot about counting money, running any kind of a household and making people a little happier :)
    I am also very interested in any kind of feasible physical help such as gardening, farming, building, etc. Anyway I'm usually quick enough to learn so I'm ready to try almost anything :)
    In my previous workaway experiences I did some translations, farming and computer work, but mostly I had a lot to do with all sorts of hostel works: cleaning, check-ins, help in the kitchen and restaurant, etc. I was also working in client-facing industry (like being a waitress, administrator, salesperson) for quite a long time.

  • What else ...

    I do believe that if you do something, you have to care about it, and that it's better to not do something at all than do it badly. So I always try to perform my tasks in the best possible way and take the responsibility for the results.
    I live a simple life and all I need to feel happy and comfortable is good and friendly people around me.
