My name is Emi. I was born and raised in Lima, Peru. I consider myself responsible, curious, easy going and fun.
I studied Communication and worked a couple of years in digital marketing but know I want to make a career shift towards making something more meaningful for others and the world. For this reason, I'm taking a sabbatical year to travel and discover more about this world and myself. I want to learn and teach as much as I can and develop genuine human connections.
I'm eager to learn a little bit about everything. I am very interested in other cultures, religions, spiritual knowledge and humanities in general. Traveling for me is a way of learning more about our own human condition and I try to do it as often as I can. I love meeting new people and live through their stories and experiences. I also love exploring new places and outdoor activities.
Photography is my main passion but I also like cooking, reading and drawing/painting. I'm currently very interested in meditation, psychology, energy healing, art therapy/education, and humanitarian aid. I can provide help with teaching English/Spanish, babysitting (I love children!), cooking, hospitality, cleaning, gardening, painting... I'm very much open to experience different things. I am interested in the unknown, I want to make a life of continuous learning.
On May 2018 I had my first workaway experience volunteering with a polish family; my work consisted on teaching English and Spanish to a 13-year-old girl and also helping around the house (cleaning/cooking/gardening). I loved it! In July 2018, I volunteered in an NGO that provides lunch for a refugee male camp in Serbia and it was a very touching and consciousness opening experience for me. I met kind, selfless people from different countries that inspired me and taught me how important is for us as humans to develop empathy and help each other. I want to continue on building long lasting memories like this one and I am eager to experience different lifestyles. After Serbia I volunteered in a Scout Center of a small village in Transylvania, Romania, making activities for kids in the village and helping in the pottery workshop the center runs. In Turkey, I spent one month as a Chef's assistant on the Mediterranean coast close to Bodrum.
I'm currently traveling around Iran, planning to go to India next.
I am interested in start traveling by bicycle, especially Central Asia. I've never done it before so I would like to find a travel buddy for the first experience.
