Hello! My name is Mahali and I am 24 years old from California.
After graduating from university in 2017, I’ve spent the last two years working with refugee aid NGOs in different places around Europe; first in Rome for 4 months, then Serbia, where I ran a kitchen that supplied food to the largest refugee camp in the country, and then in Bosnia, where I was the director of a family shelter. Currently, I am in Texas working in operations and corresponding with detained asylum seekers to help them with their release.
I have a large range of work experience varying from film festivals (event development), large industrial kitchens (plus cooking for ~600 people), childcare (both at home and educational setting), and program directing. Generally I'd like a workaway experience that's somewhat relevant to my career plan (human rights, photojournalism, non profit work, etc), but right now I am completely open to doing and learning anything that one has to teach me–I'll never object to obtaining a new practical skill or getting the chance to teach/play with children.
My interests include photography, film, human rights, cooking, languages, books, etc. I'd be happy to teach English, as well as help practice Italian, Spanish, French and even the little Russian that I know. I am particularly interested in learning Arabic and Turkish, but am honestly open to learning any language that someone would want to share with me.
