    Hello dear hosts,
    nice to meet you! I'm Stefania, an open and friendly 30-something Italian. I'm currently living in Belgium (Brussels), where I live since 5 years. From time to time, I get bored of Belgium and I love to do some travelling or workaway...

    I am looking forward to share my time with my host, meet new friends, experience new cultures, and improving my language skills (Russian mainly, but I love languages so I would be very happy to pick up another language!).

    Till March 2015 I used to live in Germany - near Dusseldorf- but after my graduation I decided to go to France as Workawayer. That was the best decision ever! I have always dreamt to learn French and so it was time to make my wish come true. So I went there from April 2015 to October 2015, I met a lot of friendly and welcoming families. I helped with the kids, teaching some Italian, taking care of the house and the garden, supporting the families in their daily activities, some renovation support...

    In August 2016 I went to Zagreb , and I volunteered in a hostel, working at the reception, helping with the housekeeping (beds and cleaning), and also in the garden. In March 2017 I have been in a Belgian family for three weeks, helping them cooking, for general help around the house, and for their kid. Then again in another Belgian family for a few days during May 2018. In 2019 I went to the Cote d'Opale next to Calais, to help in a bed and breakfast to help with the guests and little manteinance works in the house. I look forward to starting my next workaway in 2021!

    I'm a friendly, open and respectful person, I like to speak with other people and work in a group, but I can also stay on my own, enjoying a walk or just relaxing in contact with the nature. Since I was a child I live in multicultural environments and I love to be in contact with people from other countries, spending time speaking another language, and getting know new people. I am interested in other cultures, and I am very happy to share mine!

    I love sports and particulary athletics, which I used to play for many years before my life abroad. I'm a very active person and I love to start a day with a smile and a lot of things to do. If there are new tasks, I can learn them very quickly, since I'm curious, not afraid to make new experience and ready to try something new. I love cooking, and spending time preparing the meals is very enjoyable for me!

  • Was könntest du arbeiten?

    During my teens I used to play athletics at a good level and I learnt to organise well my time with school, sports, friends and family. I'm also a good team player and I love to create a good atmosphere in the group I'm working for. Also honesty, fairness and passion are value that I have learnt in my team and then became mine.

    During my studies I worked as fair and congress hostess, so I know what does it to mean hard, also for several hours without pause, but keeping to be polite, happy, concentrate and precise. Therefore I know how to deal with people - also under pressure - and to resolve problems or misunderstanding fast.
    In my Erasmus year in Germany I worked in an italian restaurant, sometime as barkeeper, sometime as cleaner, sometime as weitress, so I have some experience in this area and I would be also happy to help in the kitchen or to serve breakfast.
    Last summer I worked in a hostel, and it has been an amazing experience to welcome people from other countries! I love to interact with other people, and working at the reception has been fantastic.

    I'm used to activities related to cleaning at home (washing dishes, hoovering, cleaning toilets etc), I'm a tidy person and I tend to clean up even if it is not requested, I do it for my own sake. Last year in France I helped in a host's guest house so I know what it means to be effective, fast, and precise in cleaning, changing towels and sheets, and tidying up the rooms.
    I love cooking and I know many delicious recipes from the italian cuisine. My workaway hosts always took advantages of that and they still remember backing pizza with me, preparing Tiramisu...amazing!

    I like to play with children and in Germany I volunteered in a children charity, where I used to take care of few babies and children while the mothers were attending a german language course (2 times a week). I have several years of experience in babysitting, in Germany and Italy.

    My family has a small holiday house near the Alps so I grow up really close to the nature. I like to work in the garden and grow up vegetables, I have a green thumb and I take care of my plants at home. In France last year I helped in a host's garden and I liked it.

    Turning to animals: I have been in Workaway hosts with pets (dogs) and it was great! In a french workaway family I helped for the chickens and I grew up in contact with cows, goats, and ducks of our neighbours, so I'm confident that I can learn how to take care of them.

    I have already taught German, Italian and English to children and adults (classes but also tandem/speaking training), so I have some experience in language teaching. Since I like languages very much, I enjoy practicing them with other people, and I have a lot of useful tips that I learnt or developed by myself.
