Hi there! I am a cheerful, curious, respectful, and hardworking Canadian, setting out to travel the world! My goal is to gain new skills (both work and language skills) while meeting people from diverse backgrounds and making a positive impact on the world around me. Right now, I'm mostly travelling in France because I have a work permit there that allows me to stay for a full year.
Over the years, I have worked in customer service, event planning, website content/social media, mapping, babysitting, and costume design. I have also volunteered as a cultural mentor and English assistant for international students at my university. My education is in theatre and visual arts (high school) and geography (university). I find the most fulfillment when I am teaching or serving other people.
As someone who doesn't like to be wasteful, I always look for ways to fix or reuse things. I am quite resourceful, always looking up how to do new things like making my own toothpaste and lotion, or planting vegetables, or fixing my bike. I love creating and working with my hands. I learn new skills quickly and solve problems calmly.
I am looking for workaways that are both welcoming and challenging, where I can contribute my time and skills to make a positive difference. I want to learn whatever you can teach me!

Customer service and sales, social media, leadership, event planning, writing/editing in English, cleaning/tidying, painting/drawing, sewing, cooking, baking, basic bike maintenance, positive attitude!

English, Swedish (intermediate), French (intermediate), Spanish (beginner)
Cultural exchange: I love music, dancing, bicycles, and food. I can teach you what I know about swing dancing, basic bike maintenance, Swedish and "Canadian" cuisine (really, we just eat a mix of foods from around the world!), and baking breads and cookies. I want to learn to surf, bartend, and garden and other kinds of dancing. I am also curious about diverse cultures and lifestyles.
Language exchange: I am a total language nerd. I will happily give tips or even basic lessons to anyone who wants to improve their English. I also want to learn and improve my skills in other languages through immersion, lessons, or conversations!
