  • Description


    Hello, my name is Rachel. I grew up in France and I have been living in the United States for 20 years. I have dual citizenship (American and French). I am bilingual in French and English and I also speak Spanish (intermediate) and a little bit of German. I am looking to relocate in a different part of the world but I am not sure where yet. So I am excited to volunteer with Workaway and work with other like minded people as a good way to experience other cultures.

    I have many years of professional experience developing and managing cultural programs. I worked in tourism, museum education, in the performing arts, in arts and healthcare as an editor for an online journal, and as a French language teacher for an Alliance Française. Because I love sharing experiences with others, I create and lead tours each year to France, my native country.

    I am a multifaceted person with various interests. I am curious, easy-going, honest and compassionate and have a good sense of humor. I have an adventurous spirit and I love to try new things, learn new skills, and discover new cultures, and meet all kinds of people. I am interested in learning about permaculture, gardening, sustainable living, eco-tourism, and more.. I enjoy backpacking, camping, and hiking. I practice yoga and meditation. The arts are also an important part of my life and one of my hobbies is making potteries.

    Hola me llamo Rachel. Hace 20 años que vivo en los Estados Unidos. Naci y creci en Francia. Tengo 2 nacionalidades (americana y francesa). Soy bilingüe. Hablo francés e inglés con fluidez. Hablo español (soy intermedia) y un poquitito de alemán. Quisiera mudarme y partir de los Estados Unidos pero todavía no sé dónde. Entonces, quiero hacer un voluntariado con Workaway porque sería una buena manera de cambiar de vida, vivir otras experiencias y viaja y trabajar con otras personas de ideas afines como una buena manera de experimentar otras culturas.

    Mi experiencia profesional es muy variada. Trabajé en turismo, en educación y fui editora de un periódico (online). Ahora enseno francés en la Alianza Francesa en Chicago, USA y organicé un tur cultural cada ano a mi país, Francia porque me gusta compartir mi cultura con otros. Me gustan los artes en general. Hago cerámica y estudié la historia del arte. Trabajé en un museo del arte y dirigí programas culturales.

    Tengo un buen sentido del humor. Soy curiosa y tengo alma de aventurera. Me gusta probar cosas nuevas, descubrir diferentes culturas, y encontrar a varias personas. Tengo curiosidad en aprender cosas nuevas como la jardinería, la agricultura orgánica, permacultura, y eco turismo y más. Hago yoga y medicación. Me encanta caminar en la naturaleza, mochilear, y acampar también.
