  • Description

    ☾ GREETINGS LOVELY ✩ HUMAN BEINGS☽ * Vaccinated * Working on Beginner Spanish*

    Unfortunately, at the present time I am not considering any au pair workways! Thank you all for reaching out :)
    Currently I am reaching out to workways in Ecuador, Peru, and Hawaii to secure some stays in Early 2022.

    I am a passionate, lively, philosophical, creative individual that is constantly looking for my next adventure. I graduated from Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador with my Social Work Degree in 2020. Thus, I also have a clear life purpose of helping people, animals, and the world around us! Of course this is intertwined with my love for travelling, exploring/appreciating different cultures, and constantly growing in mind, body, and spirit. Additionally, I adore art projects. I work currently as a social worker with child protection but I also do tattooing on the side. In the future I look forward to doing tattooing full time, especially in relation to my new found project of covering self harm and cancer scars for free!

    I love volunteering with animal shelters and children's hospitals (they are where I've spent most of my time over the years). I adore eating a variety of different cultures food, motorcycling, and an odd spontaneous trip to Amsterdam here and there. I'm obsessed with creating content whether that be reworking thrifted embroidered clothing, photography, editing, painting, sculpting, and sometimes cooking/baking. I took a year off my program to live in Ireland as an Au pair/Bartender back in 2016. As I am finally free from my educational shackles it is now time to explore!!

    I have made many friends along the way for any host interested I can provide several references to help ensure my good character!

    Always looking for a travel buddy or goofy pals in the same area to chat, laugh, or have cider with! please reach out and spread the good energy (:

    I get a lot of messages on here, so if you wanna reach out it would be better through WhatsApp 17098857945🦋
