  • Description

    Hello! My name is Emma. I am half Japanese and half Polish, born in London. I am travelling with my friend Natasha, from Leicester, UK. I spent the summer of 2021 at Workaways in the Balkans; now we are in Latin America! We have experience with gardening, DIY, cooking and animal care. I have previously worked in a number of fields ranging from PR/Marketing to event production, but my all time favourite job was working at a riding barn, caring for horses and teaching beginner riding lessons. Natasha is a whizz at DIY and anything artsy or design related, and even renovated her house on her own. We also love to cook, and during our stay we would like to make you some delicious meals to thank you for your hospitality :D
