My name is Violaine and I'm 23 from France. I'm currently an Au Pair in London -UK since last August 2020 and planning to stay until September 2021. I really enjoyed my time here despite covid and lockdowns but it's time for me to say Yes to some new exciting adventures!
About me: I've been travelling alone and working since I was able to, so I'm very independant and I can adapt myself everywhere/ to different situation ; I'm kinda like a Chameleon to be honest :)
I worked as a Receptionist in a hostel, farm works, cleaner, sales assistant, waitress...
I did two workaways, my first one in Cambodia in 2018, in a small village near Siem Reap, I volunteered in an NGO by helping kids with English and giving them support. I've stayed 3 months and it was an amazing experience.
I did a second one with a friend in a family business in the Phillipines where we stayed 2 weeks. We really loved the exchange with our lovely filipino family. We helped them with cleaning, cooking, customers...
I consider myself as a genuine person, positive and very open-minded. I'm a good listener, I love to help and learn new things! I believe in sharing with other people and community.
I'm currently studying online holistic health and nutrition in order to be graduate as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach next year. I have a real interest in nutrition, mindfulness, spirituality and I would love to connect with like minded people on my journey !
I'm looking for the ideal place such as :
- Sunny and warm (I can't deal with the UK weather anymore...)
- near the ocean
- great community where I can meet new people and share
- have some free time to study for my course
- good Wifi Access
Of course I see this as an exchange and my intention is to help by doing something meaningful in return! I like to believe that we have so much to learn from an encounter to an other.
