My name is Alana. I am 28yrs old and my nationality is Australian. I have been working as a social worker for the past 4 years and am now taking some time off to travel and embark on a journey to learn new things abroad and self development.
I am currently travelling Central and South America after spending 7 months in India.
I am seeking opportunities for cultural exchange and learning about local lifestyle and culture. I want to give back to the places and to the country that I am a guest in.
I am looking for opportunities to learn and develop connections and perhaps find places that feel like I can contribute and feel at home.
I am particularly interested in communal living, eco projects and organic farming and permaculture. I have lived and volunteered in a number of communities and am very passionate and enjoy this way of living with the land.
I am easy going, passionate, open minded, hard working, eager to learn and experience new challenges.
I enjoy nature and the outdoors, working with people, yoga, meditation, surfing, hiking, the ocean, reading, paining, jewellery making, art and play.

I am a qualified Social Worker in Australia and have been working as a social worker for the last 4 years in Melbourne.
My last role was working with communities, families, schools and other systems to support young people and assist with their voices being heard. I also provided counselling and family therapy and community development. I am passionate about social justice and grass roots community development.
For the last 6 months I have been travelling India and have experience in working with rural villages affected by poverty to help them access housing and other basic needs. I also have experience in English conversation classes with Tibetan refugees and teaching English to adults and children in Vietnam.
I have experience also working with children with disabilities and experience in facilitating therapy groups.
In the last 6 months in India I have also been practicing and learning about yoga and meditation through stays in yoga and meditation ashrams / centres.
I am seeking opportunities to further develop my skills and contribute to something I feel passionate about whilst travelling.
I am happy to help out in any way possible including cooking, gardening and shared projects. I am interested in learning more about communal living, organic farming and permaculture. I am open to learning new things whatever they may be.
