  • Description

    Hiya all!
    My name is Zofia and I'm from Ithaca NY. I'm 24, a visual artist, an avid lover of all things creative, and above all, in search of new and unique experiences.
    Ever since graduating from university in 2018, I have been "chasing happiness" and trying to experience as much as possible while I am still young. Through workaway, I spent 7 months solo traveling around Spain and Ireland and, as a result, worked with some of the most dedicated, insightful, and inspiring people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. I have taken on jobs that I never dreamt I’d be doing and have loved (almost) every minute of it.
    Last January brought me to New Orleans where I worked at a hostel and fell in love with the unpredictable nature of the work and the city. While my travels were put on hold due to the pandemic, I am ready to get back out there and explore a bit more of the US.
    I genuinely enjoy hard work, especially when learning a new skill or honing a craft. I am quite flexible when it comes to the type of work I’ll do and I am up for any task. I love getting messy and trying new things but I am just as happy helping in small(er) ways (housework, cleaning, cooking, etc.).
    I would describe myself as grounded, thoughtful, eccentric, intuitive, and driven. I’m a sucker for good music, literature, and art; I love cooking and hiking, swimming, dancing, and just spending time with wonderful, engaged, excited people.
