unterwegs auf Reisen
Hello! My name is Charlie, I am 28 years old and am from Charleston, South Carolina, US. I graduated from College of Charleston in 2014 with a degree in Women's and Gender Studies. Somewhere along the line I decided that I needed to help people in some form or fashion. Working as a cook throughout school was a nice way to 'help' people by giving them delicious food to eat and enjoy. Feeling a little stuck after graduation, I continued to cook. Soon a strong yearn to work outside developed- probably from being cooped in the kitchen for fifty something hours a week- and I quit my job to work at a local county park on the grounds crew.
Working outside was a definite plus and a huge benefit for me, but I definitely wasn't helping any one by cutting the grass and trimming the hedges. I experimented with woofing in Arizona for a few weeks. I decided this was something that could not only build me as a human and create amazing bonds with other people as well as their cultures, but really make me feel like I was doing something useful for humankind and our sweet mother Earth. After finding out about workaway through a good friend, I had hope that there was a way to make a difference in the world while enjoying its beauty!
I am a pretty easy going, simple person who enjoys working with others and who can definitely work alone as well. Teamwork makes the dream work!
Working in kitchens in the past I've become pretty good at cleaning, cooking,and working together, not just side by side! I really enjoy hanging out with children, and I'm almost sure they enjoy hanging out with me! I have experience tractor driving, and operating assorted large machinery. I can drive a car! I have customer service experience, and really enjoy meeting and chatting with people. Through the last year of workaway I have built confidence in the garden- weeding, planting, trimming. I like to learn new things and am always looking to expand my skill set!
I am a fair learner, who takes a whole lot of pride in the work that must be done in order to make the vision complete! I am open to learning and doing everything, especially hands on tasks.
