I am a graphic designer/illustrator full of passion for all the good things in life - the arts, food, animals, people... you name it. After a few gap years filled with travelling, my current plan is to move to Denmark for my studies, along with my boyfriend Vedran. Another country I've lived in, except for Croatia, is Ireland.
Since I come from a very loving, hardworking family which runs a hostel/bar, I really feel happiest when I'm surrounded by people. This taught me, at a young age, what work itself means and, what's even more important, how to interact with people from all walks of life and make them feel at home in a foreign country.
Most of my work experience is in visual arts and the service industry.
Working in and around the house is natural to me as I moved to another country, by myself, at the age of 18.
My first somewhat solo trip was at the age of 15. That got the wonderlust in me going, so I've been travelling whenever I can since then. Workaway and Couchsurfing have been amazing tools so far to really immerse myself in my travels.
When I'm in my hometown in Croatia, I sing in a female vocal ensemble which focuses on keeping traditional songs of our region alive. Which maybe sounds too serious now that I typed it out. But I like to sing. A lot. That's the point. And I can share a traditional Kajkavian song with you. Or an overly dramatic rendering of The Bohemian Rhapsody.
I really love cooking, too. In a regular week at our house, we have anything from ramen, curries and stir-frys to traditional Croatian/Turkish/Balkan cuisine.
To sum it up, I'm very flexible when it comes to work, whether it requires a shovel, power tools or a paintbrush. Singing, dancing and doodling are things that I do constantly... everywhere.
If you want to know aaanything else, don't be afraid to ask.
