Hi there! My name is Pamela and I am from the United States. I am just finishing up 5 months of travel in Asia. I am now coming to Australia on Working Holiday Visa and am looking to get acclimated to the Victoria region through Workaway!
I love learning about new cultures and ideas. Back home I worked as an urban planner, so I am fascinated by cities and the people within them. That said, I also love being in nature, whether it's hiking, swimming, running, biking, or just laying in the grass. I also recently became a vegetarian and started meditating. I am trying to live a more mindful and sustainable life.
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help with Eco project
Help in the house
Helping with Tourists
Help with Computers / internet
I have a wide range of skills that I can contribute to a potential host.
GARDENING AND YARD WORK
I spent a summer working at a greenhouse, where I got my hands dirty and learned about caring for plants. I also helped my parents with gardening and yard work at home, including leaf blowing, trimming hedges, picking weeds, planting flowers, etc. I love being outside and being active, so this is my favorite type of work.
HOUSE UPDATING / MAINTENANCE
I am familiar with various types of power tools, ranging from drills to table saws. Whether it's hanging a picture frame, painting a room, building furniture, or repairing a structure's foundation, I am up for the job!
MARKETING / COPYWRITING / PHOTOGRAPHY
I have professional experience in marketing and writing. I am internet savvy with experience building websites and social media brands. If you need help promoting a product or service, I am your gal!
Back home I have two nephews and a niece (4 years, 18 months, and 16 months) who I love to babysit. Playing with and teaching kids brings me a lot of joy!
Full disclosure: cooking is my biggest area for improvement, and I am keen to get better! If I have a recipe book and some time, I can make some delicious meals. I would love to learn from and exchange knowledge with a host.
I am a fast learner and enthusiastic worker. I am very social, compassionate, and love helping people. If there are other jobs that you are looking to have completed, I can let you know whether I have experience or am up to learn!
