  • Description

    Currently studying Geography at the University of Derby, UK and want to make the most of our extended summer break...

    If I had to describe myself.. I'd like to say I'm sociable and enthusiastic about pretty much anything. Looking for a workaway host which involves making new friends and learning about other cultures and maybe a new skill or two.

    I play a fair amount of sport, mainly football and volleyball, and learnt to surf whilst at a workaway. Absolutely love anything related to water!

    Would love to work and stay somewhere preferably where I'd have the opportunity to practise and improve my surfing.
