From: United States
I am an altruistic, creative, humble, independent and vibrant woman with a passion for traveling, working with children, helping others, and living life to the fullest. I am originally from San Francisco, California, although I have moved around a great deal and have lived in several dozen different living situations & places throughout the USA. In late 2013, I left for my first solo trip abroad and haven't looked back since. Internationally, I have traveled to over 30 countries on six continents, and plan on seeing heaps more. I am hoping to continue to enjoy WorkAway opportunities along the way as a means to meet new people, use my skills & creativity to assist in whatever way possible, become immersed in various cultures, and continue to experience this great, beautiful world.

More details about my language interests
I am interested in learning Portuguese, and practicing my intermediate level Spanish.
I live simply & humbly, and am generally low-maintenance. I am comfortable with nearly any sleeping situation, whether it be in a tent, shared dorms, a hammock (I have my own!), or even a king-size bed in a private suite ;) I pride myself in being open-minded, helpful, patient, humble and empathetic. I really don't fear much, and love to learn. During down time, I tend to keep to myself (whether it means reading a book, taking photos, exploring my surroundings, cooking a meal, or simply relaxing), although I can be quite social when the occasion calls for it. I'm well-mannered, respectful, and will try just about anything once.
