    After my Workaway tour of France I decided to move to Paris. I am now looking for a job, a place to stay but mostly new friends or passers by with stories to tell to meet.

  • Description

    I'm Francesca, from Firenze, Italy. I've been working as an assistant to an important Italian intellectual and cultural operator for the past 12 years. Last year I realised that in the previous months the most fun and happy moments I had lived had involved meeting new people, travelling, listening to different stories and making new experiences. I also felt the urge to leave Italy so I quit my job and left for an amazing three and a half month long tour of France using Workaway. The tour was so amazing that I decided to actually move to France so now here I am in Paris, looking for a job, a place to stay but mostly new friends or passers by with stories to tell.

    At first I sometimes may seem shy but I'm actually pretty easy going, willing and happy to help and learn, curious, patient, trustworthy, respectful, hard worker and I rarely say no to anything without trying first.

    I am very interested in culture, art, films and music. I'm an almost self-taught guitar player, I enjoy making music and singing by myself and with others. I read and write a lot, like learning new things, listening to unheard stories and discovering new cultures. In fact I've lived for three years in South Africa as a child and absolutely loved it. I'm a former amateur football (or soccer) player but I enjoy sports in general. I have recently discovered the pleasures of hiking.

    More details about my language interests
    I am mother tongue Italian. I have lived in South Africa as a child so my English is pretty fluent. I am mostly willing to improve the French that I studied (very well) in high school but I also enjoy getting a chance to speak English. Wouldn't say no to practicing the German I learned not so well in school.

    I'm trustworthy and helpful. I don't have any particular manual skill but I'm good at reading (or following) instructions and I'm a fast and interested learner in more or less anything. Otherwise I can help to lift weights, moving, help out in gardens, I have some computer knowledge. I have a driving license, I can teach some basic guitar for beginners, do household chores, improve your Italian.
