  • Descripción

    My name is Mia.
    My #1 travel essential is an open mind and open heart. To me, cultural immersion means forgetting everything I know to completely open myself up to new people, new places, new sights, sounds, tastes and feelings.
    I am super excited to try new things, particularly new food! Strong flavours and tasty food lights me up on the inside and it would be an honour to cook with local people wherever I get the opportunity.
    I have a fascination with the natural environment, particularly birds. I enjoy spending time outdoors, exploring, hiking, wildlife watching, and admiring the natural history of everywhere I go.
    I have recently completed my studies in environmental science and am willing to share my skills and knowledge and continue to be a lifelong student. I am most engaged when I am learning new skills and I am motivated by various collaborative opportunities with a diversity of people. I consider myself a global citizen and I am looking to live and learn about our world.
    I am lucky enough to have travelled to Thailand, China, Borneo and New Zealand where I have had many opportunities to connect and engage with local and indigenous people. In China I helped local students at a University with their English studies, in Borneo I engaged in many interviews with indigenous people with a focus on environmental management and cultural histories, and in New Zealand, I learned from local and indigenous people about native plant cultivation, seed collection and broad-scale landscape management for sustainable farming practices.

    I am excited to be learning Spanish. I only know very little Spanish at this stage, but hopefully, by the time we meet, I will be able to hold a conversation! Hago mi mejor :) I am willing to teach English also, with the Aussie accent of course!
