My name is Madeline. I’m 24 years old and from New Zealand, I have spent the last 3 years working and travelling in Australia, South East Asia and now Europe. Prior to this I studied Visual communication design for 2 years in New Zealand and worked over a year in an advertising agency where I specialised in illustration, graphic design and multimedia art.
I came to the realisation that working the 9-5 was not for me and that I wanted to travel and find a lifestyle that was more fulfilling. So I quit my job, backpacked Asia and then worked in Australia til I had enough money and booked a one way flight to Europe! I spent last Summer travelling in Spain and Portugal and then doing work aways in Croatia. I've since been based in Amsterdam over winter working to save for my next adventure.
I come from a big family and grew up in rural New Zealand spending most of my childhood in the outdoors and around all kinds of animals. I have a good work ethic and many years of experience in mainly the hospitality industry working as a waitress, bartender and barista. I've worked at functions and events, in advertising and even sold strawberries in the street at one point! I'm social, outgoing and friendly and i'll give anything a try. I love the outdoors, food, animals and all things creative. I can cook, draw, paint, play guitar and surf (not very well yet) - but i'm most happy when i'm living near the sea!
I live a Vegan lifestyle as i'm very passionate about animal rights and the environment and love to meet like-minded individuals. I'm a very creative person, I play guitar, sing and draw so I like to find workaways where I can share this with others!
