    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    Hey there, I'm Helena, I turned 30 last year and decided it was time to leave London. I have a passion for life and seeing the world especially Latin America. I want to perfect my Spanish, dance as much as I can and go on many adventures. I am a people person, and love helping, inspiring and motivating others. I have worked with young people a lot of my life and now with early career professionals using my life coaching and NLP skills. I truly am on a self development journey at the moment eager to discover new experiences and skills in life. I am a very open minded person and just want to jump into some other cultures. I am half Ghanaian, so it's in my blood to explore beyond just the UK. I am keen to find projects that can both utilise my skills and push me outside of my comfort zone. I'd love community work, working with young people, building / construction work, conservation / welfare for animals, cooking and work around eco living. I long to run my own retreat one day so some exposure to that would be great.
    I have recently done a 5 month workaway on lake Atitlan Guatemala running a hotel lodge, cooking, running reception, the bar and welcoming guests. It was a truly magical experience working alongside indigenous people and immersing myself in local culture. I even did a Natural building course learning how to make cob, adobe, rammed earth, plasters, rocket stoves and all sorts. Would love to put these into practice sometime.
