hello future host(s)!
After spending the majority of my life navigating the education system, as a student then educator, I am excited to embark on this next journey of learning and growth. I am eager to work with my hands and body to acquire life skills and experiences that I have wanted to but relegated as secondary. The global 'pause' of COVID-19 gave me the clarity I needed to finally pursue these interests and passions, and I am excited to learn all that I can from you!
I am looking to spend at least the next year doing this, so longer stays welcome.
I am an extremely inquisitive person who is open to learning almost anything. Some of the things I am most interested in: carpentry, woodworking, construction, bioconstruction, gardening, farming, alternative energy systems, irrigation systems, cooking, working with animals, sustainable living, and so forth. This list is far from exhaustive!
I have a degree in Peace & Conflict Studies from UC Berkeley, where I also taught a course for a year, and have taught Peace & Conflict Studies at a high school in Jerusalem. I then worked at an NGO/research organization dedicated to sustainable development before deciding to move back to the US. I spent the next year as a server at a fast-paced restaurant. I grew up between California and Palestine, and have travelled in Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa.
I have positive energy and am full of life and love, and look forward to pouring them into my work :)
My first workaway experience was helping to build an earthbag house, which involved 4-5 hours/day of physically demanding labor under the sun in the middle of August, with temperatures reaching 90+. Putting my body to work, as it was meant to do, is something I very much enjoy and look forward to.
Can you communicate directly, respectfully, and clearly with me? Are you passionate about what you do? Are you ready to not just tell what to do, but also show me how and explain to me why?
If it sounds like I could be a good fit, please get back to me or reach out!
Though I have limited specific skills, I have all that it takes to acquire them. I am self-motivated, extremely inquisitive and excited to learn all that I can, smart, a critical thinker, a hard worker, passionate, in good health, strong, physically active, ready for a challenge, reliable, a great communicator, independent, a lover of the outdoors, and committed to learning the fundamentals of sustainable living.
