I am from Australia and after hearing about the amazing opportunities offered by Workaway, and my deep desire to experience cultures and people beyond the generic tourist experience, I am keen to explore the world through Workaways !
I have an interest in understanding and observing the connection and interrelationships between society and the environment. I believe that humanity needs to live more harmoniously with our precious environment, especially given our current exploitative behaviours that are actively warming and destroying the environment. I consider myself an environmental activist and an avid supporter of sustainable living. I find my vegan lifestyle reflects my general attitude towards nature, animals and the environment.
I love being in nature, and find peace and solitude in the natural environment. I enjoy being active in the outdoors, whether that is hiking, exploring or helping my mum in the garden. I also love dancing and music, and being in the company of creative, innovative thinkers who are passionate and self-motivated.
I am captivated by the possibilities of sustainable, eco-living and would love to learn and experience how other people are doing this.
I have recently completed a Bachelor of Development Studies which has given me the opportunity to study environmental science, anthropology, humanities, Indigenous studies, Pacific studies and sociology. I have be able to learn about the important connections between humanity and environment, and problems of the globe.
I am also part of an environmentla youth organisation in Australia, committed to achieving climate justice. Through the work of this organisation, I have learned more about the importance of community, sustainable practices, and local insight and inclusion.
While being on exchange in the Netherlands for the last three months I have also been involved with a local environment organisation where I have had the opportunity to help organise events, create promotional material, and organise a climate action (human chain) demanding climate action.
Through these experiences, I have become more confident and engaged in local and global actions. I have improved my skills in community engagement and organising - which I absolutely adore ! I am self-motivated and hardworking, and enjoy working either independently or in the company of others.

I stuided French for 2 years while at University, but I would absolutely love the opportunity to practice and build on my (very mediocre) French skills.
