Our next destination:Denmark - from Aug 2022 until Sep 2022 View all
Hi! We are Emma and Laura, two French girls, respectively aged 20 and 24 years old. Our parents met when they were in high school and stayed friends, so we've pretty much known each other for all of our life :)
Workaway is a way for us to enjoy a real break from our academically/professionally busy lives, and reconnect with nature, which we feel is so important.
We are very curious and eager to learn new skills, especially hands-on. We'd love to discover more about sustainable living and self-sufficiency, which we both desire to implement into our future life. We also are striving to build more peaceful and intentional living habits.
Emma is doing an undergraduate in psychology and linguistics in Scotland. She enjoys spending time with friends, the outdoors, taking photographs, cooking a variety of vegan dishes, and deeply appreciates literature and cinema. She takes a profound interest in intersectional activism. She has a long-standing experience in babysitting, as she has regularly been engaged in taking of care of children from the time she was 14. She practiced the accordion and horse riding for a while, and has worked on a vineyard as well as several farms. She would gladly try and teach French to anyone interested.
Laura is currently living in Paris, working there as both an intern and a freelancer. She previously enrolled in a master course called Fashion Trend Forecasting in Florence, Italy. She loves arts in all its forms, but anthropology, sociology and human behavior are her favorite topics. Her family lives in the countryside, so she is always happy to come back to this small village to enjoy the nature wonders. She is easy going, always smiling, and is willing to improve herself everyday. She is very comfortable with children, she went to Pescara in Italy as an AuPair girl to take care of five italian girls and to teach them English. She is regularly babysitting. She has always been living with pets, and enjoys spending time with them. And finally, she loves to get early to enjoy the sun first lights and do some sports to wake up her body.
