Hi, my name is Marcella and I'm a 19 year old Brazilian who moved to live in Lisbon with the family 2 years ago (my parents and my 18 year old brother). We decided to move to Portugal to have an experience living in Europe and for a better quality of life.
I just graduated from high school in Portugal and I have decided to travel before getting into university, since I want to meet new people, get to know new cultures and different lifestyles.
I would conseider myself a very sociable, adaptive and positive girl. I'm always open to talk to people and make new friends.
I enjoy being close to nature and going to the beach as well as hanging out with friends.
I also like children, I used to be a babysitter in Portugal for kids between 6 to 8 years old, and I love spending time playing and taking care of them! So I would love to help you with babysitting in case you have children!
During my gap year I volunteered in 3 hostels (in Malta, Zagreb and Prague), in an olive grove (in Brac Island, Croatia), in a chateau in France and with some gardening/general help in Sicily.
I speak English, Portuguese and intermediate Spanish.
I hope to make good memories and share moments with really nice people during my gap year :) Hopefully you can be part of my travels!

More details about your skills
I already have experience working in hostels since I've worked in 3. While I was volunteering I had to do housekeeping and work at the reception.
I don't have much experience with gardening but I would like to learn more about it. I've only worked in an olive grove and I really enjoyed it.
I have experience with kids since I'm a babysitter in Portugal :)
I would love to work with painting, it's something that I'm very interested in.
I can also help with household tasks such as cleaning, helping in the kitchen and cooking.
