Hey everyone! My name’s Dani and I'm from NY! I'm taking a year off from school and am looking to travel, explore new places, and meet some awesome people! I love to learn, both in and out of the classroom, and am a very open minded person. I'm up for any type of volunteering/work and would love to be somewhere that is beautiful with lots of outdoor opportunities. I’m always up for an adventure – hiking, swimming, biking, exploration, etc. I've traveled a good amount and lived in different community settings, so I get along great with others and know how to live with new people.

My first Workaway experience was volunteering at a hostel in the north of Israel for 6 weeks; it was amazing! The work involved cleaning, maintenance, interacting with guests, and just helping out with anything that needed to be done. I've also had experience with farming and manual labor (I worked/lived on a farm for 4 months). I love the feeling of working with my hands and creating something, or helping to keep something running (building or land maintenance, animal care, planting/gardening, etc.) Another thing about me is that I’m a very active person and love going for runs and hikes.
I work well with others and have lived in a tight-knit community with strangers before, all of whom I now call friends. I’ve been a camp counselor for 3 summers now, and working/living alongside my co-counselors required being responsible, patient and open minded.
I'm have been learning Spanish since 6th grade, but am not fluent.
Some of my other hobbies include playing basketball, skiing, volunteering, and hiking. A fun fact is that I summited Mt. Kilimanjaro in 2017!
