    Good Workawayer

  • Description


    My name is Lavinia, I am 26, half-Italian half-Lebanese and grew up between Italy and South Africa.

    I am an artist-designer and have a background in fashion design. I love travelling to discover new cultures and learn new languages! I enjoy being around beautiful natural landscapes but I also love the entertainment of big cities. I am curious about all kinds of art and crafts and am always happy to participate in group work, meet new people and get involved in creative projects :) I am also eager to engage in any project related to sustainability and the environment, and morning meditation is a daily practice of mine!

    I speak bilingual Italian and English, a bit of French and I am learning Japanese as I am very passionate about Asian and in particular Japanese culture, philosophy, art and crafts (both traditional and contemporary).
    I have been vegetarian for 10 years so I don't eat any meat or fish but that has never stopped me from being able to make new friends :) I am easy-going and can spend time by myself as well as in others' company.

    This is my first time signing up with workaway and I think I can best offer great language practice and tutoring, help with creative projects and who knows, one day I might give renovation and farming a try too!
    I hope that we can get to know each other and share some interesting knowledge and stories :)
