    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    Hi, I'm Elen! I am now on my gap year before going to study Architecture and Structural Engineering in September 2019. I have had a great experience living with a family in Italy and looking after their children. I'm 18, I live in London, England and am looking to join a workaway (or several) in the coming months to have some new experiences and meet new people. I am particularly interested in workaways where I can join a community or family and help them achieve their goals. I am motivated, hard working and a quick learner!

  • What skills do you have?

    I am currently working long hours serving customers in a busy Italian restaurant in London and I have also worked in several shops and a small mail order company. I have basic computer understanding, and I have an intermediate level of French knowledge from my A level studies (which I am looking to improve). I have taken Italian lessons and have a basic understanding of grammar but would like to practise my spoken Italian.
    I have been doing babysitting and childminding for 4 years, helping children with homework, cooking food for them and entertaining them.
    I am very hands on and willing to help in domestic tasks such as cleaning, washing up and ironing. I have also done some painting and decorating (for family, granted but I have had no complaints!). I have helped with many tasks in helping my grandparents to do up their small house in France, such as painting, varnishing and laying tiles.

    In my free time I like to draw and do printing, as well as playing the piano. I like to swim regularly and practice my cooking and baking!
