  • Description

    Born and raised in the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. I deeply love the outdoors. My favorite things to do on my spare time are hiking, kayaking, swimming, cycling and being outdoors exploring my surroundings.

    I've had 7 Workaway experiences, having the privilege to volunteer for 4 farms, 2 earthships, and 1 hostel. So far my travels through the world have only taken me to, 2 Canadian Provinces (British Columbia and Alberta), 30 USA States, 4 European countries and a few Caribbean islands. I have also extensively explored my island, Puerto Rico and wish to volunteer there as well. My goal at some point is to have set foot in every continent with as many countries as I can eventually afford to vist.

    I take great pleasure in working and feeling useful. If I agree to a cause or a particular work I am 100% committed and will not give up until the job is done. The phrase of “I don’t stop when I’m tired, I stop when I’m done” really describes my work ethic.

  • More details about your skills

    Through Workaway I've had the opportunity to learn about farming, working with animals, assisting in goat births, trimming goat hooves, gardening and some building skills like how to mix concrete, build a rock wall, pounding tires, dig trenches, peel logs, among other things. I also learned about the procedures of checking in and out hostel guest while providing the best service possible so that the guest could have a great experience. Before Workaway, most of my skills were only clerical skills. I am happy to announce that since I started this journey I have gained many other skills along the way and will continue to do so.
