  • Description

    Hello!

    I am 29 years old, living in London, looking to travel in Italy for a great cultural exchange!
    I have been to Italy several times before, including a workaway experience with a family in Rome. I love the culture and country so much - therefore its my primary destination after the pandemic!

    My primary interest is in traditional health and medicine, which I have been studying for two years. I would be very interested to study some regional Italian traditional culture and health practices. Therefore, I would be very happy to stay with a big family!

    My background is Iranian that grew up in Sweden. Happy to introduce the hosts to my cultures if interested of course! I love cooking - Italian, Persian, middle eastern, Asian fusion cuisines are my favourites :)

    I have travelled a lot with workaway and other volunteering organisations before, so I am easygoing and quite culturally adaptable (I hope!). I have a lot of energy, and my life purpose is to be happy and spread warmth to everyone around me! :)

    I work as a freelance consultant therefore I still have to do some (part time) research-based work on my computer, which can be very flexible (I could be working evenings or when I have free days).

    ***PLEASE NOTE: I HAVE RECEIVED THE COVID-19 VACCINE ALREADY***
