  • Description

    [edited] - this is a single person not a couple account as Anthony is working in Singapore and not traveling with me.

    Hi! I (Suzanna) am a 31 years old Singaporean, doing my PhD in Computer Science at Johns Hopkins in the U.S. I did my undergraduate studies in Edinburgh UK in Psychology and A.I, worked for the Singapore government as a Psychologist and then Computer Scientist. I think my gift to the world is education and I'm a big believer of paying it forward. So now I'm back in grad school in the U.S.

    I've traveled quite a bit around Europe and South East Asia, and am always trying to learn about local history and culture.

    You'll find that I have an embarrassingly limited interest in sight-seeing or tourism, that's a non-reason for me to workaway. I'm here to learn about life (yours), especially one away from the city. Fine to work longer hours and always looking forward to gaining new skills. My friends describe me as both highly work motivated but socially laid back.

    I like being around people, but I also enjoy reading and self-reflection, so I am fine being left alone (don't have to be constantly entertained!)

  • What else ...

    I spent 4 weeks on a river boat in the Amazon as a biodiversity research assistant, and hence not fussy about living conditions. I've also had previous experience with organic farming practices.
    My commitment is 10-14 days, given that I have work responsibilities and unable to take longer breaks from work. I do adapt quickly and have previous experience WWOOFing (Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms), so I hope you will consider me despite the time commitment!
