  • Description

    I am an enthusiastic, positive and energetic person and I put love and passion in everything I do!

    I love challenging myself, experiencing new stuff every day, learning new skills and new ways to live life and looking at it.

    I've always been "hungry" of new experiences as for me are one of the most important thing in life and they make you grow and wiser.. so that is the main reason why I decided to be part of Workaway!

    I LOVE travelling!!! and the best part of the journey: meeting people :-)

    ..also I love travelling but not only being a tourist
    ..also and especially "living" the places, the people, the culture
    that's why I believe Workaway is the project that perfectly match with me and the experience I am looking for..

    I love dancing, cycling, running, meditating and I've been practicing Qi Gong, Thai Chi, Belly Dance and Yoga for few years, so I am a person how like to keep it moving! ;-)
    but at the same time I like spending time on my own thinking about life and admiring the wonderful nature..
    but no worries! I am definitely a social person! :-D

    ..well I can't wait to join a new adventure with you! :-)

    I love nature:

    - I love doing beach cleaning or any other kind of environmental project (that's what I hope doing with Workaway as well!)

    -I love flowers and plants and taking care of it - even if I am not a professional

    - I did farmwork in different farms back home in Italy and in Australia (so I am not afraid to get my hands dirty ;-)

    Work experience:
    -Diploma of Beauty therapist (helped me to develop a sense of beauty and harmony, I got very precised- I am fighting against perfectionism ;-) it helped me to interact with people on another level more intimate and confidential and based on trust)

    - Barista (coffee maker) : after the first experience with Starbuks in a busy store in London I am used to a professional and well structured work environment, working under pressure and with high standards;
    after this experience I worked at the cafe in the oldest travel-bookshop in London "Stanfords" where I growed to assistant manager and I got to know a lot of beautiful interesting travellers from everywhere and enjoyed helping to run a small coffee house;
    Other experiences in events, exhibitions, concerts and festivals are also part of my experience behind the bar (with a lot of fun!)

    -Farmwork: I did it for several seasons back in Italy during summer when I was still a student (picking apples and pears);
    I lived in Australia where I did farmwork for 3 months: picking cherry tomatoes, zucchini, broccolini; packing zucchini; weeding; digging sweet potatoes; sorting tomatoes and cutting ginger (the best one!!)
    So I am very used to farmwork and I am not afraid to get my hands dirty!

    At school I also studied Reception for 2 years and had few experiences related.

    I am very open and happy to try different stuff and develop new skills! :-D
