    Good Workawayer

  • My status

    At home

    I submit my PhD at the end of January 2022 and I am looking for an experience that allows me to connect to nature and learn new things.

  • Description

    Bonjour! I am a PhD candidate, formerly studying and living in beautiful Edinburgh, currently in London. Previous to moving to Edinburgh I was living in Ireland for a few years as well. I'm planning on being back in Canada in the new year and will be submitting my thesis at the end of January. I'm eager for an adventure and opportunity to explore and learn. Aside from the constant reading and writing involved in my studies, I like to live an active lifestyle and enjoy art (particularly writing and poetry). I'm a dedicated life long learner. I love to be challenged and certainly do not shy away from hard work.

    ** I am also open to paying rent for a private space conducive to writing/working somewhere peaceful. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have a potential option for this! **

  • More details about your skills

    My biggest assets for work exchange are animal and child care- both of which have always come naturally to me, being the eldest of three children and having many pets at home. I also have experience teaching at the university level and am a patient language conversationalist (would absolutely love the opportunity to learn additional languages myself). In addition, I'm physically fit and love to be outdoors, would be keen to develop gardening skills further. I developed much better cooking skills over the pandemic (vegetarian & vegan). Basic labour, painting/putting together furniture/cleaning etc. all very comfortable for me.
