  • Description

    Hello!
    My name is Linda, I'm 31 years old, and I speak Italian, English, Spanish, and a little French.
    I was born and raised in Italy, and spent six years living in London, where I graduated in Creative Writing. For the past few years, I've been workawaying around the world, while working as a freelance translator and on my PhD.

    I have several years of experience in the hospitality industry, working in and managing hostels. During my workaways I have taught English and Italian, worked in farms and ecovillages, worked as a social media manager, cooked vegetarian food and baked sweets... and have had always had a wonderful time!

    I attended art school while in Italy, performed in a theater company, and I work with painting, photography, and various crafts. I have experience working as a webmaster, blogger, bartender, waitress, cashier, cleaner; I have worked in customer relations, literary agencies, administrative jobs... And I can cook delicious Italian dishes!

    Looking forward to meeting you!
