  • Description

    I'm Emily, a fun-loving, enthusiastic, and committed person who loves to help. I consider myself more empathetic than the average person, always trying to anticipate what other people might need. I usually put others first because I just want to make the world a better place! My motto in life is that everyone is fighting something, and at the end of the day, everyone deserves to be happy. So, I try to spread positive vibes as much as possible!

    I'm originally from a tiny town in Maine, USA. I got a scholarship for college in New York, and moved out of the US after graduation to move to my current home "base" in Istanbul, Turkey. After working and living abroad for the past 10 years, I've finally decided I'm happiest when living an alternative lifestyle. I am normally working online as a freelance writer for a few hours a week to fund a lot of traveling.

    I started hosting workawayers of my own in 2019-2020. You can see my retired host profile here: https://www.workaway.info/en/host/235993441328

  • What else ...

    I have a number of random hobbies. I've studied the zodiac extensively, can read tarot, know how to play violin, have a massive music collection, am an avid fan of video games, anime, Star Wars, and a slew of other nerdy things, can do origami, and love to do research on new topics. I guess I'm just all around very curious and knowledgeable, so don't be surprised if I ask a lot of questions or offer to teach you about something!

    I've also been a couchsurfing host and guest for many years, so feel free to check my profile there, too! https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/emilyangeles
