  • Description

    Hello,
    My name's Amanda and I am a digital nomad, working and traveling without any set timeline. I've been traveling through Central and South America since July of 2018 and have been working as a digital storyteller, writing blogs and website copy for various organizations, since January of 2019 (portfolio: http://amandaknaebel.journoportfolio.com/). My travels have helped me explore new cultures, meet incredible people, and learn A LOT of Spanish.

    While I do have a "job" that helps me afford my travels, I value the experience of volunteering at various places--learning new skills, helping others, and becoming a part of a family. I am open to many different volunteer opportunities, such as writing blogs or website copy, assisting with receptionist needs, working with nonprofits, pet-sitting, or working in a cafe, school, studio or other places where I can help out and learn some new skills. I'm not afraid to push my comfort zones and am a quick study. For me, as long as the vibe fits, the work will, too.

    I love yoga, hiking, beaches, waterfalls, nature, sunshine, good coffee, hammocking, dancing, cooking, camping, reading, art, live music, chill environments, adrenaline sports, and more. So if your place can offer any of these, that's a huge bonus! I am also very dedicated to improving my Spanish, which is at a basic level (sometimes better depending on the topic of conversation and my time listening to the region's accent), so I would like the opportunity to practice as much as possible! I am also interested in learning how to cook traditional dishes and improving my yoga, salsa dancing, or artistic skills.

    If I sound like a good fit for your WorkAway opportunity, please reach out! I'd love to learn more about your needs and to answer any questions you may have.

    Thank you!

    Best,
    Amanda
