  • Description

    Hello to everyone!
    My name is Francesca, I am 19 years old and I am from Italy.
    I finished high school last year where I studied English, Spanish and German.
    In high school I studied History of Art and from that subject there is something that I will never forget and which inspired me to face this journey. I studied Gauguin's works and I clearly remember that suddenly, in the middle of his life, he decided to leave his country and move to Polynesia, a land where the evil didn't exist, where technology didn't exist and a land whe
    re people were pure, far from the modern life, so fast, and a land in which he could find simplicity and traditions.
    And that's why, inspired by his thoughts, I decided to dedicate a year to freedom and to spend it in a world that is completely different from the one I am used to live in, and South America perfectly represents the ideal world that I wanted to reach, a land that has always been in my dreams since I was a child.
    I want to leave with the aim of finding out more about different traditions, culture, the aim of getting to know new people and new lifestyles. I am ready to experiment them all! I like doing literally anything, the important thing is, in my opinion, that all the experiences are to improve yourself and you're way of dealing with different situations.
    I decied to subscribe to your project "WorkAway" because I am sure that the best way of travelling is not the one tourists would do, but literally living the place, the traditions and the culture with local families.
    I hope we will have the opportunity to meet each other!

  • What else ...

    I really like travelling, visiting new places and trying the food each country can offer (I literally taste anything). I love listening to music, my favourite artist/group are Rino Gaetano and The Beatles, I really love study art! But the thing I love the most is being with people: I love talking, getting to know them and letting them know something about myself, helping people with disabilities or children. I really love making people feel happy, appreciated and loved. That's something that really matters to me: I want people to feel confortable and I want that people that live in difficult situations feel great about themselves and, if it's necessary, give them hope. As an example, when I did volunteering I just felt great when the people I helped smiled at me and felt loved. This has been the best of the rewards for me.
