    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    Hiya all!
    My name is Zofia and I'm from Ithaca NY. I'm 23, a visual artist, an avid lover of all things creative, and above all, in search of new and unique experiences.
    For nearly a year I have been on a quest to “chase happiness” and get as much out of my life (and youth, while I still have it) as possible. I have spent the past 7 months solo traveling around Spain and Ireland (through workaway) and, as a result, have worked with some of the most dedicated, insightful, hardworking, 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.
    My plan was to return home to NY after Europe and settle down with a job and a studio, but it seems I caught the travel bug and I just can’t bring myself to call it quits so soon. So the journey continues! It has been a lifelong dream to travel through America, my own country of which I have seen so little.
    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.
