    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    Hello to all Workawayers,

    I'm Rosa, a New Zealander with a love of nature and learning from/meeting new people. Last year, I left my dream job as a craft product designer at a fair trade social enterprise to travel slowly around the world. So far, some of the highlights of my time have been the Workaways I have done - what an amazing opportunity to meet inspiring people doing inspiring things, and to learn from one another!

    Qualities I can bring to the table:
    - open-minded
    - respectful
    - motivated
    - can-do attitude
    - relaxed when necessary, energised when necessary

    As noted, my personal drivers are to learn from other cultures, develop new skills and meet some lovely folks. I'm an arts and DIY lady through and through so am passionate about anything creative, though I have also absolutely loved getting my hands dirty in farm work, cooking and hospitality.

    I have been working for a mental health charity in London for the past few months, but will head off for mainland Europe in early June.


    And I'm Alanna, an Australian gal who shares many of the same interests as Rosa including being out in nature, meeting all different kinds of people as well as seeing and doing new things. I have just finished up doing many work exchanges in Australia and am excited to expand and do some exchanges overseas for a meaningful experience. I get immense satisfaction helping people out, especially ones who are willing to open their homes and businesses up for such a lovely exchange :D.

    I am enthusiastic, hard working and have a positive attitude. I am interested in trying new things so will give pretty much anything a go. I love music, gardening, watching stars, camp fires, reading and organising things. In the past I started my own cafe, and prior to that studied nutrition.

    Rosa and I have lived and travelled together in the past, and we are very excited to join forces for a fun and enriching cultural exchange on workaway!
