    Top Workawayer

  • Description

    Hello, my name is Naoko, from Japan.

    I've joined workaway as I'd like to experience local's life around the world and different jobs.
    I like to work both in City and Countryside, but now I'd like to connect nature more.
    I'm hopping to have this workaway chance not only as experience but also to learn and to develop my skill for my future project.

    I'm easygoing and like to socialize everyone. One of my good skills is to make friends.
    I'm also open to new things and respect others and other culture/ custom, so I can flexibly arrange my lifestyle.
    I'd like to experience different kind of works.

    I haven't got job in Japan after graduate university as I don't feel working in office, sticking to one place, earning plenty of money but need contribute a lot of my time, is not attractive for me at all.
    Instead, I'd like to have small amount which is enough to make a living and spend more time for myself.

    I studied philosophy, art history, and culture.
    My dissertation was about capitalism and happiness and I just realized that I don't need a lot of money, but I need a lot of time to spend my time to feel ease.
    And the lifestyle and education which is thought to be "right" and is carried out in general is not necessary the best one. It's a bit boring so I'd like to seek some other ways, there must be other options which must make my life richer.

    I still wanna learn and am interested in a lot of new things , such as computer languages, photo shooting, video making, graphic design, fashion, eco friendly and zero waste life style, organic farm, permaculture, fermentation, minimalist, tiny house movement, vegan meal, macrobiotic, yoga, taekwondo, music.
    I'm not sure what I'm gonna do in the future but maybe something like connecting people and nature using art and technology.

    If you need to check more about me, facebook and couchsurfing account may help.

    I believe I meet a lot of amazing people and a learn a lot of different culture and work through workaway!
