  • Description

    Hi there, I’m Marina! I’m just a kid that tried out college for a 2 years but wasn’t able to settle on a major. So without any idea of what I’d be using a degree for, I’ve decided to take my life into my own hands and finally explore the world! I’m looking for some stories to tell and some experiences to toss under my belt. My philosophy so far has rounded out to treating and acting on respect with everything I can but never losing the ability to be silly. This has been tested a lot over the past two years with my job as a barista/grill girl/general handy woman around a breakfast and lunch restaurant in my home town. I’ve lived in the same small Northern Californian town all of my life and It’s finally time to try out a different setting. I’m very drawn to the ocean and most all bodies of water I can swim in; swimming creates a peace in me unlike anything else I’ve experienced so far. For fun I usually resort to drawing or singing but I’m pretty good at making most anything entertaining for myself. I’m prepared to do any work I have the knowledge for and I’m really excited to try out new things and learn! That’s what this whole thing is all about! I’m willing to work hard and get involved in whatever’s needed of me and I understand the importance of honoring the privileges I will be given by hosts through this program. Stretching my comfort zone is scary but welcome. I’m treating this entire adventure as a learning experience and hope to meet some really incredible people and make my time with workaway as rich as possible. Thank You
