Hello! I'm a 23 year old girl from the UK, currently volunteering in Romania.
I have been living non-stop through workaway for over 2 years, and have loved every minute. I am so blessed to have met so many amazing people, worked on such great projects and learnt so much. Most of my professional/trained skills are in hospitality/tourism and childcare and ESL teaching (details below), but I am also really active, I love being outdoors, working with animals, and getting creative.
-- Just a note : I started my workaway account in 2017, but when it expired this year in January 2020 (because I was in a long-term volunteer position here in Romania) I did not renew my subscription until now (May 2020), so some of the analytical data (reply rate etc) may not be accurate! I reply I promise :)
Experienced admin/waitress/hostess/bartender (plus basic mixology skills) and trained housekeeper and catering assistant.

Currently completing a degree in Childhood and Youth Studies, specializing in Child Psychology and Youth Justice Law.
Currently volunteering as a Camp Counselor and English Language teacher (7-19yrs) in Transylvania, Romania
Love running around with kids and dogs, all water sports/hiking/cycling outdoorsy stuff. Big fan of exploring/learning/debate/discussion and new things, people and places. I am a university student; I study part time and take my classes, exams etc through my laptop, so unfortunately that means, at least for the moment, internet access is important. However, I have before and can manage with nearby cafes/libraries etc. This also means that I genuinely cannot work excessively overtime/more than pre-agreed schedules, as I arrange my classes and studies around it.
