  • Description

    Hello, my name is Simone and I am an Italian drama student, living in Rome. The stage is one of my biggest passions and I hope one day I can gain my living only by acting. I feel my biggest trait is my work ethic. I’m not a whiner and I get things done. I consider myself quite handy in the kitchen and I’m also a dog lover. I can easily adapt to every situation. When I am given a task out of my reach, I take it as a challenge to get involved and learn something new from it. I'm willing and a quick learner.
    What I hope to gain from my experience:
    - Meeting new people and discovering different life styles from mine.
    - Learning new skills, whether they are practical or cognitive.
    - Being involved in some artistic or cultural project.

  • What skills do you have?

    I have worked in different sectors and from every experience I have gathered some new insight or knowledge that has enriched my path. For six months I worked in a call center. For several years I have given private lessons to teenagers and children. Also, for the past two years, I have been working in a hugely popular Roman pub as a waiter. Finally, I have recently discovered a love for comedy and stand-up, and I have been touring clubs with my monologues. From those experiences I learned how to organize my time in a focused and productive manner and how to control anxiety or at least diminish its grip.
    Last summer I had four different experiences through workaway (all of these in England) and I learned a lot of skills related to the handy jobs. I built fences and logstores, I took care of the garden, I painted etc.
    Of course, I can't consider myself an expert handyman now, but I know my stuff!
