    >>>NADIA’S INTRO

    I am Nadia from Mexico City and I am very excited about this upcoming adventure! I’ve decided to leave behind my 7 year-life in China to keep moving, growing and enriching my days. I want to continue discovering and learning and that’s why I am planning this 7 month-travel journey. I believe there’s more to life out there and to be able to support/help some of these amazing Workaway projects will give me the chance to enjoy these rewarding moments and unique lifetime experiences that I am looking for.

    I will always try to do my best with a proactive, positive and up-beat attitude.

    I assigned topics to each section hoping for an easy reading based on your priorities.

    Thanks in advance for reading me and considering me!
