Hello all! My name is Gina Alpert.
I matriculated last year from Herschel Girls High School in Cape Town, South Africa. I am currently taking a gap year to do some work, travel and volunteering. I plan to start my degree in 2020 in the field of Humanities.
I am young and vibrant, yet mature and responsible. Intergrity means a lot to me and I value honesty and openess. I love photography, art, music, dancing, cooking, animals, being in nature and spending quality time with my friends and family. I am extremely passionate about social justice and equality; I am open minded and ready to participate in interesting discussions. I am a very social person who loves to be around interesting and bubbly people.
I hope that my Workaway experience will allow me to meet young people from around the world that share similar views on life as me, but also learn about their cultures and ideas. I’d love to be with hosts that have young children and who need help taking care of them or equally to work with young adults. I am also extremely happy to cook, garden (I love growing herbs, vegetables and fruit in my garden at home), tutor children and anything else I can help with. I enjoy doing DIY projects at home and together with my creative skills can help out with art projects/ interior design if needed.
I am fortunate enough to have travled to Chile, South America when I was 15 on a student exchange. This travel experiance taught me a lot about living with people of a differnt culture/ language to that of my own. I have also tavelled to London, Italy, Greece, Mauritius and Mozambique with family and friends.
I am truly excited about this opportunity and hope that I can share this experience with a host that will benefit from my skills and personality.
