  • Description

    Hello hosts (and other Workawayers!)

    I am Edison Miguel from the Philippines. I have a business degree from a prestigious university in the Philippines.

    I have been traveling and workawaying for more than a year now.
    I love teaching and learning languages.

    What motivates me?
    I feel motivated whenever I can travel, meet new people, and share new experiences with others. I also love helping people and sharing my skills. I love meeting people who share the same positive energy as mine and just here to enjoy life and to be kind to everyone. :)

    What brings me happiness?
    Kind people, new experiences, reading books, Vietnamese food (or any food in general), sincere conversations, jazz.

    In another life, I'd want to be a (struggling) surrealist painter, a (struggling) jazz trumpeter, or a (struggling) contemporary poet.

    There are lots of things that I can say but frankly, I'm more interested in knowing more about you :)

    Current obsessions:
    permaculture, plant-based cooking, and Amor Fati.

    I've done 11 workaways now, mostly in farms in Portugal, Italy, and France.

    I have dined with Muslims, hiked with Buddhists, cycled with Christians, camped with atheists, had a crush on an agnostic, cooked with anti vaxers, worked out with vegans, learned from hunters and avid meat eaters, lived with the French, Spanish, Arabs, Irish, blacks, whites, yellows, ocean divers, dumpster divers, naturalists -- with whomever or whatever - Love, empathy, and respect triumph.

    I don't have years of experience with painting, constructing, gardening, etc, but I'm constantly learning and improving.

    -I play some musical instruments like guitar, ukulele, drums, bass guitar, and electric guitar. I used to play guitar for some yoga classes. I was also part of a band where I mostly played the bass and sometimes the drums.

    -I play basketball, chess, volleyball, and table tennis.

    -I can also share anything about business! I owned a successful small business before but unfortunately I have to hand it over to my brother when I left the Philippines.

    -I can share my skills with subjects such as: social media marketing, copywriting, Instagram and Facebook ads, cold calling, etc. (since I have a business degree from the [arguably] best university in the Philippines, and a real experience in opening up a business). I can make ads and posters.

    -I also love photography! Mainly street photography. I have a portfolio and I can share that skill as well. (I can show you my Instagram profile where I love to share my street photos)

    -I love filmmaking and video editing. I am adept in using Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe Lightroom. I can make a film about your workaway profile.

    -I am an English and Filipino teacher online. I was an English teacher assistant in a school in Madrid handling classes for children ages 3-16. I love playing with children in our school and to help them learn English in a fun way! (I can show you my Italki profile so you can see my 100 students and their very gracious feedback from our lessons)
    I taught English to German adults as well (ages 40 )

    -I know how to create a workout plan, whether weightlifting or calisthenics.

    -I did odd jobs when I was younger such as waiter at a restaurant, real estate sales, selling sandwich and lemonade, math tutor, and market researcher.

    -I used to rent out condominiums in Manila, I "flip" them, renting it bare then raising its value by adding furniture and such then renting them out for profit.

    - I can do "business" in English, French, Spanish, Tagalog, and Portuguese.

    Interests:
    I read a lot about business and philosophy.
    I am learning more about art (paintings) and jazz musicians/bands.
    Religion - any, but recently, Taoism and Buddhism.

    For any concerns, don't hesitate to ask me. I'm a very kind and gentle person.

    Plus de détails sur les langues qui m'intéressent
    I am an English and Tagalog tutor. I love to teach languages! I'd dare say I speak French and Spanish fluently. My Italian is getting there, albeit crawling. My Mandarin Chinese is promising (promisingly lacking its vocab), while my Russian is in an uphill battle. My Portuguese (Portugal) is sometimes more Spanish than Portuguese. And currently, I'm trying to learn German.

  • Autres infos...

    I love reading different books! With topics such as philosophy, business, biography, religion, and non-fiction.
    I also love art specifically paintings (surrealism, 17th century Dutch golden age (!!) , Magritte, Rembrandt, Rubens, Caravaggio)
    I experienced the value of meditation and yoga.
    I write -- when life forces me to write.
    I know quite a lot about nutrition and working out. (fasting, calisthenics, power lifting). I firmly believe that fasting is still underappreciated.
    I am an avid learner. I am curious about almost anything and things that I do not know peak my curiosity the most! :)

    -----
    I'm fortunate to have already done 10+ Workaway experiences. I'm glad I lived with hosts who are entirely different. I was able to learn heaps of skills, lived their unique ways of life, and connected with these immensely interesting people in an authentic and profound way.
