I am here on workaway because I want to have clothes custom made. I need someone who can work as a seamstress/pattern maker.
1 room available for a minimum of 2 weeks.
The home can host 1 guest at a time.
I am looking for those that can achieve the perfect balance of friendship, work (in the form of teaching me things), healthy boundaries, and balancing the needs for socializing with the needs for alone time. Because I will wear several hats with you: friend, host, and roommate. So someone with above average emotional intelligence is welcome!
In terms of concrete cultural exchange value I can offer:
- professional French lessons help. with me. I have lots of experience teaching French to professional and executives. Teaching used to be my job.
- a cat roommate: it's good for relaxation
- I practice Somatics and can also show you some about this, if you are interested.
- conversation about awareness, and acceptance, meditation, psycho-emotional concepts.... I am a psychiatric encyclopedia and medical science reading is my favorite hobby. Ive helped friends in life saving ways sometimes because doctors just didn't care/know their job. I don't know how and why: but I saved people with google and my keen research abilities. so, that's weird but true. and kind of sad that it's true. but if you want medical conversations....I got'em.

Hours can be on a flexible schedule and discussed together on a punctual basis. Days off can be discussed on a punctual basis or preset (e.g. weekends are off).
Some hours cannot be discussed and priorities must be given to those, but we give you plenty of notice time for fixed hours tasks.
We'd Skype first and do a virtual visit, and then we make a decision.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
