unterwegs auf Reisen
My name is Katherine, and I'm in my final semester of studies at UC Berkeley.
The thing I care most about in the world might be food – I care about making it with and for people I care about, and about making food production more sustainable. I currently work as a freelance journalist in the Bay Area, focusing mostly on homelessness and science news but covering a wide range of things. I love working as a journalist because it gives me an excuse to talk to strangers every day, oftentimes people I might not otherwise have met. I'm hoping to spend the next few months somewhere beautiful, meeting new people and learning about new ways of living (and helping with whatever you need help with)! For the next month or so I'll be traveling with my dear friend Kia, who until the pandemic worked as a biochemist in the Bay Area and is now applying to graduate school. I've done some WWOOFing before and spent a few months working doing paid work on maple syrup farm in Vermont which was wonderful, but this is my first time on workaway. Can't wait to see what comes!

Was könntest du arbeiten?
I've worked on several small-scale farms before doing a wide range of tasks, as well as at a maple syrup farm where I distilled and bottled syrup. I was also very involved with the packaging, distribution, and marketing of our syrup. I also have experience doing more home-centered land care, like weeding and landscaping. I recently started building tables! I am strong, and a hard worker, and I'll come to everything with a positive attitude (and probably a snack).
Spanisch: Gute Kenntnisse
Mehr Infos zu meinen Sprachinteressen
I'd like to hone my Spanish-speaking skills, which used to be quite good but which has grown rusty over the last few years!
Was noch ...
I'm learning the guitar, I like to write (bad, whoops) poetry, I love music, cooking, taking photos, hiking, moving, dancing, swimming, skiing – anything that involves wiggling and being outdoors.
