  • Description

    What can I tell about me! I am a 32 years girl from Cali, Colombia :)
    I love music and cats!! In my home, I have two official cats plus 6 little ones that I take care of which I have rescued from the streets. As in my country, and especially where I live, there are lots of homeless cats so I try to do my best! I have participated in lots of adoptions events for those little guys. I also have a beautiful dog which came to me from the streets too!
    About my love for music! I am building my career as a singer (just started :D ). You can check my youtube videos here ( I have 2 already :D ) that's a cover from J-Balvin - Sigo Extrañándote and the other one is a cover from Shakira - Deja vu.

    I am travelling through India right now and I have learn so much. I wanted to do this trip to find myself some answers I've looking for. I would love to volunteer at an animal shelter to give and receive love from the little ones, cats, dogs, I really want to help. I have seen a lot of things so far during my journey through India. When I arrived to Delhi, I stayed near Nehru Place, and there were some beautiful streets dogs really happy to see me!

    So, anyway, I just want you to know that I am really looking forward for an opportunity to this, and that's why I joined Workaway!

    I have volunteer in the past in my country, helping communities of low resources. As I come from a place sometimes forgotten by the government, I really like to return the community what they've given to me and to show how you can grow by sharing good vibes to others!
