My next destination:Puerto Rico - from Oct 2021 until Jan 2022 View all
Hello! I am a 26 year old college grad from Burlington, Vermont and I have a passion for traveling!
I can be shy at first, new places/people can be overwhelming for me at first but I settle in quickly. I am fun, energetic and outgoing but I also love my alone time to read, draw, and reflect. I have always dreamt of traveling but there was never a great time until now. I have traveled on short trips to South America, the Caribbean and Asia. I love to learn about new cultures, and different ways of living around the world. I have taken beginner language courses in Spanish, French and Italian but would like to further my skills.
I have worked for years caring for the elderly as well as adults with disabilities. My work is what drives me to be a better person and I have learned so many life lessons from the people I care for. In my free time I enjoy playing with my 2 cats, being active outdoors (hiking, swimming, biking etc.), but also relaxing with a good book on the couch. I love to make art both by hand and digitally. My friends and family have a huge impact on my life and who I am as a person. Making strong connections with others pushes me to be a better person and learn more about who I really am.
What I am looking to get out of Workaway is a new look on life and to find a better understanding of who I am and who I want to be. I want to learn about the world around me and get out of my comfort zone. I am open to learning and helping as much as I can as well as making lasting friendships along the way:)

More details about your skills
I have worked with the elderly population for years in nursing homes. I absolutly love the work that I do not only because I am helping others in need but I am making an impact in their lives. I have learned more about myself than I had thought possible. I have also worked with adults with disabilities in day programs and also have a sister with Downs Syndrome who I help out with. Through all of this I have learned patience, compassion and a strong drive to help others.
I also studied art for a few years in college. I love to draw, paint and do art on my computer for fun! I love helping in the kitchen and am an excellent cleaner!
I spent 2 weeks volunteering on the Galápagos Islands helping with animal care and land conservation. This experience not only gave me a taste of other cultures but helped me get out of my comfort zone by getting my hands dirty.
More details about my language interests
I am very interested in learning the native language of wherever I travel to as well as helping others around me to learn english
What else ...
I have had cats, dogs, ferrets and fish growing up and absolutly love being surrounded by animals.
