Hello and bonjour!
My name is Lauriane. I'm from France. I grew up in a small town near Paris. I've been living in Glasgow for 3 years now.
I started to travel abroad when I was 18 years old, doing several language training trips around the USA to improve my English. Curious about everything I studied in very different fields (psychology, meteorology, veterinary studies…) before choosing to embrace an acting career, which took me to the New York Film Academy in Los Angeles where I spent a year and then here in Glasgow. I am passionate about the performing arts, I am also a dance lover and have been practicing every kind of traditional, modern and world dances for many years. I also love exercise, yoga, Pilates, bodybuilding, and I'm literally crazy about hiking! I can walk for hours!!!
Even if I love my job, I always wanted to travel the world and now more than ever I feel the urge to do so. I think volunteering is a wonderful way of discovering places while connecting deeply with real people living real life. I'm interested and amazed by anything and everything really. I get excited by everything new I see or learn so when traveling I try to experience as much as I can. I love discovering new places, meeting with people, and learning as much as I can about the place I am visiting. And if I can help people while I make my dream come true what more could I ask for!?
My forever best memory is swimming with wild dolphins in Panama City Beach, Florida. This was my sister's dream, and we did it together for a few days 3 years in a row. That’s an experience of a lifetime.
I must say that I'm more of a nature lover than a city girl. While I'm still in Scotland I'd love to do a road trip (bus trip to be exact lol) on the northwest coast of Scotland to see and visit lighthouses. I don't know why but I'm passionate about them. I've already done a road trip in France all along the west coast to visit and take pictures of them. I must have seen 50ish now between France, USA, and UK.
At a working level, my main assets are hospitality, tourism, and English teaching. I am currently working at the Hilton Garden Inn as a Food and Beverage Assistant and have many years of experience working in different hotels mostly in Disneyland Resort Paris and 4* lodging establishments and understand how a hotel works. Behind customer service skills, I just love taking care of people. My goal has always been to keep all guests happy and comfortable by solving any issues or answering any queries they might have during their stay. I also have years of experience teaching English as a foreign language to kids, teens and adults and I am proud to say that every one of them reached their goals! I love creating exciting and engaging lessons to motivate my students and help them to learn effectively, always in an efficient still friendly and relaxed way!!! I also love animals and regularly do cat-sitting :))
As you might have discovered I am versatile, a hard worker who doesn't like routine! So, I'll be happy to help you with anything even if it might look like out of my area of expertise at first! I’m not afraid of going out of my comfort zone!
My relatives say of me that I'm a free spirit, and that I'm witty, driven, and kind-hearted!
Can't wait to embark on a new adventure with you!
All the best,
