  • Description

    Hi! I'm Jarrah, your friendly-neighbourhood-sun-loving Aussie from Melbourne.

    I'm backpacking Europe after finishing my Masters in international development in the UK. I consider myself an optimistic environmentalist and passionate social justice advocate. To make a difference to those in need is one of my life's greatest joys, as is of course making an adventure of it!

    I have been doing Workaways whilst travelling in Europe, in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques, France, on Lago di Como, Italy and currently in Tipperary Ireland. They have been wonderful experiences and I'm looking to continue exploring new places and ways of life.

    My travel experience includes backpacking Indonesia and SE Asia, travelling to the island nation of Kiribati, and roadtripping around Aus.

    I love to talk about science, wildlife, history, sing, dance, laugh, and cook delicious plant-based meals!

    I have a wide array of skills to offer your project. I've worked as a tutor, cook, labourer, gardener, wedding DJ, bartender, and even a pizza delivery man! I can chop wood one day, paint a wall the next, and teach your kids some English after that! I might sing you a song while I'm at it!

    I do hope you find my profile appealing. See you soon! :D
