  • Description

    Hi to everyone , what I am writing here will be your first feeling about me, so I will try to be clear to let you know who you may host. I am a 22 years old guy from the foggy part of northern Italy and since I finished the high school I always wanted to meet new culture and exchange knowledge.
    That's why after 2 years working near my hometown, last year I left my hometown with the intent to work abroad learning how to fend for my self. I have visited and worked in amazing places such Portugal visiting and walking through it, Azores island and Canarias islands too. I did plenty of job from the receptionist to the barman ,the tuc tuc driver or the babysitter, spending really great time and learnign a lot. I have lived with a lots of cultures sharing experiences together practicing and learning new languages , and met many people which some of them are truly friend of mine nowaday. Once came back I have studied in Bristol for 2 months improving a lot my English.
    During my childhood and my teens I was a little handyman. As we didn't have the cleaning lady I was his substitute cleaning up the house as I my parents were at work all day long. During the weekend and during the summer I was at my grandparents' place.They have a well cured vignet and they tauhgt me how to live side by side with nature and growing every day my fond for it. I learnt how to take care of animals managing animal supplies including stable cleaning, feeding and healthcare. My grandma (as a good Italian nanny) taught me how to cook and people usually enjoy my food ( or at least they are kind lyer). Thanks to my grandparents I found my love for the environment and I've learnt how to respect it. I have quite experience with children too, I am used to babysit my niece teaching her English and Math, I loved spending time with her inventing funny games with our creativities combined , help her doing homework and motivating her self . I think we can learn a lot from children as their joy for little things and their pure spontaneity.
    I am in Workaway because I would like to find a place where to help as best as I can, bringing positive energy, happiness and smiles. So I hope my long description wasn't that boring and thanks for the attention :)

    I learnt to be OPEN-MINDED living with people from different cultures ;
    I learnt to be HELPFUL because my family needed my help and so to be RELIABLE .
    I started to be CAPABLE and QUICKLEARNING since i was a child because of the work in the nature and I am always enthusiastic to learn new and useful things. People always say to me that I am funny. I love to make people laugh and to lift their spirits up because I think work comes easier and better in a good vibes environment.
