Hello there. I hope you're having a nice day. Thank you for viewing my profile.
My name is Nicole Sweet and I am 20 years old. I grew up in the small town of Durham, Connecticut, about two hours away from New York City. Ever since I had my first Work Away experience in Myvatn, Iceland last summer, I have become hooked on traveling and experiencing new cultures.
I have decided to keep on seeking out unique experiences through Work Away because I love the way they challenge me to be more open, understanding, and loving. I also love how traveling allows me to think of the world through a bigger lens, rather than just the small New England town vibe I grew up with (not that there's anything wrong with that). I'm a big believer in peace and empathy, and I feel that traveling allows me to meet more people who share those same beliefs, as well as people who absolutely don't.
I am an artist and am constantly sketching, reading, writing, watching films, thinking about creative projects, and dreaming.
I am extremely open-minded and love talking to different people and I am a really down-for-anything type of person.
In my life, I would like to contribute to the world someway through the creative arts-I have not yet figured out exactly how I am going to do that, but I am taking time to travel and learn about myself in order to better understand what I would like to do to help the world in this field.
At university I'm studying a mix of psychology, linguistics, and writing, and am interested in going to graduate school for social work to either help start my own non-profit or be a mental health care provider.
I look forward to meeting you!!
Love and kindness,
