  • Description

    Hi my name is Zéna! I'm Swiss and Lebanese, grew up in Switzerland and moved to Canada with my family 12 years ago.I went to high school in Ottawa and got a degree at Algonquin college in Hotel and Restaurant Management.

    I always knew I wanted to learn Spanish, so after college I started looking into Spanish schools abroad. I ended up going to school in Costa Rica for 3 months, followed by a month of volunteering and a month of just living the Tico lifestyle. That trip completely changed my life. I fell in love with traveling, learning about new cultures, volunteering, trying new food and meeting new people. Traveling has become a part of my life and I have gone on many trips since then.

    I'm very friendly and outgoing, love to laugh, keep active and fit, have a good time and I'm always up for a new adventure. I'm looking forward to working in a beautiful place, with awesome and down to earth people and good vibes :)

  • More details about your skills

    I have a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management and have been working in the industry for 8 years. So I am knowledgeable in anything related to hotels and restaurants. I like interacting with people, making them feel welcomed and be of assistance at any time.

    I also have experience in teaching. I had a job working part time as a teacher assistant in a German school and I've completed a Tefl (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) course online, as well as volunteered as an English Teacher in Costa Rica.

    I speak 5 different languages, including English, German, Arabic, French and Spanish, and I am currently learning Italian.

    I have also recently (May 2019) completed my first sailing course- I now am a licensed skipper. I really enjoyed sailing and I'm hoping to gain more knowledge and experience.
