  • Description

    Hi everyone!
    I am 23 from USA and currently looking to collect experiences and learn new things with warm, genuine people around the world...
    I've studied sociocultural anthropology and creative writing at the University of Pittsburgh for the past 2 years, but decided to put my education on hold to pursue my dreams of traveling. I am open-minded, curious, and enthusiastic.
    I cherish every opportunity I am given to learn. I view all of our differences as a GOOD thing, not bad. I love to learn new things every day. If there is something that I am unfamiliar with, i am eager to give it a try. I am here to live my brightest and fullest life, and hoping to make the world a better place by doing so. I enjoy writing, reading, meditation, hiking, camping, and simple tasks like gardening and working outside--getting back to the basics and things of that nature...I also enjoy meeting new people and pride myself in my story-telling skills :)
    my current mission: get outside, do honest, down to earth work with the land, surround myself with nature and reconnect with my truest self---something that I have been needing for quite some time now.

    takeaway message: I am here to push myself beyond my comfort zone, learn, and gain new skill sets :).

  • What skills do you have?

    I work best with people; I am outgoing and energetic, and able to have a conversation with anyone. I have worked in retail, restaurant, education, coffee, hostels, childcare, and recently, wwoofing in France.

    a few things i like to mention on my profile are:
    --I am a certified tutor for K-3rd graders at home.
    --I have two years of barista experience, and am passionate about coffee.
    --I have been writing poetry/creatively since I was a child and it is my lifelong project to become a better writer.
    -- I have experience with blogs and have published several nonfiction articles/poetry/ essays.

    I am happy to create in any way, and I love a challenge. If there is something I cannot do, I am happy to learn how to! I would especially love to help out with art or eco projects; any sort of project that is personally and spiritually charged.
