unterwegs auf Reisen
Hola, I’m Alexis!
In November 2019 I left Malaysia and started my backpacking journey to pursue my dream and ambition of exploring the world after meeting many inspiring travelers through Workaway in a small and interesting country called Brunei. For the past year I have lived the life of traveling that I had dreamt of thanks to Workaway.
Dear future host, if you’re looking for someone who can help you with your business or someone who is interested to share your world with me. Don’t hesitate and kindly send me a message :D
Below is my working and volunteering abroad experiences:
🏫 Volunteering as an English teacher (beginner level) at elementary school in Taiwan through Aiesec program for a month.☕️ Full time Starbucks Barista in Jackson Hole, Wyoming USA for 3 months through WAT program.🏝 Full time Housekeeping interns in Hilton Waikoloa Village, Hawaii for 3 months through WAT program.🕌 Volunteering to help a local travel agency and eco lodge in an interesting country called Brunei, for 7 months. 🌊 Volunteer of an Ocean Research Education Conservation Center for three days. 🏄🏻♀️Helping a paddle board company to handle tourists and social media in Krabi, Thailand for a month. 🎊 Volunteering at HostelOne (hostel chain in Europe) to handle and entertain guests in Krakow, Poland for 3 months. 👩👩👧👧 Babysitting— taking care of kids, practicing English and learning polish with the locals and traveling city from city around Poland for 4 months. 🏔 Volunteering at a hostel that surrounds by beautiful nature in Zakopane for 4 months. 🏠 Teaching english and staying with a host family in Bydgoszcz for two weeks. 🌊 Teaching english at a private language school in Kolobrzeg for one month.
I have a deep passion for business as my goal is to be a social entrepreneur one day after my journey of exploring the world. I was a Finance and Marketing student but ultimately realised this was not for me and so I made the brave decision to leave school and find more rewarding challenges.
Traveling has allowed me to experience so many amazing things, meeting so many kind and wonderful people from different cultures. It has enriched me as a person on every level.
I have a wide variety of interests as I enjoy the process of learning new skills and I am always open for any new experiences that can expand my perspective towards the world.
P/s: Dear host, I hope you don’t mind hosting a digital nomad as I have an online part time job as a medical interpreter.
I’ve been doing holiday part time job since I was 14. I worked as a sales promoter, waitress, assistant photographer and barista. I was a paid dancer and singer performer for several events as well.
