Need an amazing volunteer for your Workaway? Look no further! :)
- Who am I?
Hola Workaway community! My name is Ivan, a teacher and artist from Elche, a sunny town in Spain near the Mediterranean sea.
- How am I?
I consider myself as creative (I've got a lot of imagination and love art!), dreamer, open-minded, positive, adventurous, tenacious, curious, observer, quiet, athletic (I love sports and outdoor activities!), nature lover, polite, non-smoker, tidy, emphatic, respectful and kind.
- Why do I use Workaway?
I'm a photographer and visual artist. My goal in life is to develop my own style and artwork as an artist and create my own exhibition.
I want to use Workaway in order to travel and develop my Photography Project. I want to get inspired by new places, nature, landscapes, cultures, people and life perspectives. My project is related to nature and portraits in wild landscapes.
Moreover, I want to share my knowledge and skills in order to create an impact in your community. I always try to give my best to help people and improve their lives. I find the cultural exchange the most exciting thing about Workaway!

Was könntest du arbeiten?
ARTS AND CRAFTS: My passion is photography, but I do other skills such as illustration, art workshops, graphic design skills (Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator…).
TEACHING / TAKING CARE OF CHILDREN: I am keen on working with children and thanks to my teaching work experience I have become more responsible and creative, as I had to take care of kids and I had to be ready to react quickly to potential class conflicts. I have to highlight my Master in Education and my role as a teacher in Vietnam where I gained effective leadership and communication skills.
Teaching in Vietnam helped me to strengthen my adaptability because I had to understand the students’ perspectives to create tailored lessons, face cultural barriers and adapt myself to the Vietnamese lifestyle.
HOUSEKEEPING: I love cleaning and arrange things. Marie Kondo (an organiser consultant) has become one of my main inspirations in life. I am able to do the washing-up, clean, gardening, ironing, arrange the wardrobe, classify things, design spaces…
LANGUAGES: My mother tongue is Spanish and I am fluent in English, I have a Cambridge certificate, enjoyed unforgettable homestays and joined intensive courses in Ireland and USA, which makes me able to teach and switch between both languages with confidence. I’m really keen on teaching and learning new languages!
NATURE PRESERVATION: My passion for travelling and love for nature preservation encouraged me to volunteer at nature-related workcamps (constructions, gardening, feeding animals) in Iceland, Morocco or Spain where I developed teamwork tasks as well as cultural projects which made a more open-minded person out of me.
COOKING/DRINK PREPARATION: I love cooking and learning new recipies. I also worked as a barista at Starbucks where I gained relevant coffee preparation skills and learnt to be well-organized, empathic and respectful.
