  • Description

    Hello / bonjour! My name is Zyra, I’m 27 years old and I’m from Niagara Falls, though I currently reside in Ottawa, Canada.

    It has been a few years since I last participated in Workaway, but I have very fond memories! After completing my Master’s degree in Defence, Development and Diplomacy in the UK in 2018, I explored much of Europe using Workaway. Along the way, I met a lovely, dynamic community of hosts interested in sharing their culture, life experience, and language. I found that experience truly enriching - and I’m very excited to be back on Workaway with the opportunity to meet more wonderful people and learn about Québécois culture!

    I am currently studying French online until the end of June 2022. I take an online French class from Monday-Friday, from 8:00am -4:30pm. I’m enjoying the course, but I’m interested in gaining a language immersion experience and understanding more about Québécois culture. With this in mind, I am looking to connect with a host that would allow me to complete my Workaway tasks outside of my French lessons (after 4:30pm Monday to Friday, or on weekends).

    I am triple vaccinated against COVID-19, and I hope to travel to Quebec from early April to mid/late May.

    My goals for going to Quebec are twofold: (1) to connect with new people and spend time exchanging culture and language in a meaningful and immersive way, and (2) to improve my French language understanding and proficiency.

    Overall, I’m open to new experiences and looking forward to meeting you!
