Hi! My name is Jasmine, I'm 22 years old, I'm from Québec (Canada) and I'm travelling with a cat named Jetpack.
I speak french, english, spanish and I'm currently learning portuguese.
I am a big nature & animal lover. I love birds, reptiles, cats, fishes, mammals, horses, dogs, amphibians...anything that have eyes, legs or fins! And I’m in love with the forests, the oceans, the plants, the trees, the lakes, the mountains..every place where anything that have eyes, legs or fins live!
I have just finished a 3 year degree on natural habitats with a specialization in fauna. I hope persuing a career in the protection of the environment and to spend as much time as possible with nature through my travels. I have great interest in selfsuffisciency and try to learn as much as possible to live in harmony with nature and have the less impact on the environment.
I really enjoy art. I have touched and practice many styles of art. I have studied cinema before and appreciate contemplating and creating films and videos. I also love painting on everything, do embroidery, dreamcatchers, draw, braid bracelets, sew and mainly pimp or create objects out of recycled things.
Further more, I appreciate writing stories and especially poems. I am a musician, I sing, play the ukulele and can do a bit of guitar and percussions. I write songs and also like to jam!
I always have creative ideas, I like to try new things and go for it.
I want to volunteer and work on projects that really trigger me and that are related to my values. My main goals when traveling around the world are to learn about new things, help people with their projects, see different cultures and life styles, experience adventures, discover new places, and to live and enjoy the present moment fully.
I am always trilled for adventures. I am a good partner for any activity that sounds like fun! :)
Jetpack is a little orange cat full of surprises. I adopted him from the street in Peru while traveling between the ocean and the desert. He's the most social cat I've met in my life and is used to pretty much everything. He's seen forest, moutain, jungle, beach, desert, snow, cars, buses, planes and even took a boat once!
He adapts to everything, he likes to explore new environments, to take walks (and little breaks on shoulders) and to cuddle with good-vibe people. 'Don't need an extra space for him, we sleep together ;)

Help with Eco project
Helping with Tourists
I know a lot of things about the environment and the wilderness. I can tell you endless fun facts about nature and it's living beings :)
If you have animals on your property, I will be more than pleased to take care of them. Animals are truly my passion and nothing makes me more happy than spending time with one of those beautiful creatures.
I would like to help with any type of farm work and eco building. My goal is to, one day, have my own farm where I could grow my own fruits&vegetables and produce my own energy. I am willing and would really like to learn more about permaculture, farming and sustainability. I also have experience in food forests and alternative food systems.
As I am a very artistic person, I would love to paint and do photography and films. If you need any wall to be horned, a promotion video or a few pics for a website, I'm your girl! If you have any art project, I have endless ideas germing in my mind and am just waiting for an opportunity to let them out!
I did several workaways before: I worked on farms, in restaurants, hostels, spas, ecovillages and schools.
A part from workaway, in my canadian life, I've had several jobs like: sandwich artist, baker, waitress, vet tech, wildlife rehabilitator and much more.
I would love to learn about new types of work you would be willing to teach me. I am a quick learner and I love to work with my brain as much as with my hands. I am very curious and like to do new things. I always put my 100% in what I do, I love giving a hand and knowing that I’m helping!
Jetpack isn't a real good worker but knows how to do a lot of tricks and can probably hunt mice in your house if you've got some!
English, French & Spanish
I love positive vibes, good communication, smiles, opened minds and deep conversations. I think every relation is about energy, and I try to share with others positivity and respect. Even though this last sentence sounded very deep, I like jokes very very much and love to laugh and get crazy most of the time !
