Hello there, we are two friends that will be travelling from Mexico City down through Central and South America from September 2016. We are both motivated, enthusiastic workers and excited to meet lots of lovely new faces!
In a nutshell, I would describe myself as artsy, outgoing and always keen for an adventure! I spend a lot of my free time bumbling round at festivals, enjoying the beach and volunteering with a local Theatre company. I have an extensive range of interests, from art to spirituality to philosophy. I am very sociable, and other hobbies of mine involve yoga, hiking and reading. Since travelling I have become particularly fascinated with communities and am seeking more of this to help support and learn from.
Well I would say I am a very open hearted being that is keen to experience everything life has to show me. I have just finished studying photography and plan to continue my studies doing Photojournalism in September 2017.
I've recently spent two months working on a Kibbutz learning about communal living, socially independent communities and working together for the good of all - which is an ethos I strongly believe in. I am willing to help in anyway possible, and vastly enjoy being active and social. Being environmentally conscious is very important to me and trying to immerse it with very aspect of my day to day life - from my diet to actions
Growing up in Cornwall in the South west of England has given me a love for the water and enjoy actives such as Sailing, Surfing, Windsurfing and canoeing.

As an ambitious artist and film maker, my creative skills revolve around technical knowledge of film, editing and design work. I am always seeking new creative projects to immerse myself in. I one day hope to utilise these skills to spread positive messages and promote sustainability, values I am driven by.
I have plenty of customer service experience I can offer, having spent over five years in a variety of customer service roles in retail, catering and events. I am very confident interacting with the public as well as alongside a team, having spent several summers working at festivals and an outdoor theatre. Furthermore, I am in the process of completing my TEFL qualifications, and will soon be fully qualified to teach English. My skills range from physical jobs (such as farming) to a range of creative projects, and I am excited to get involved in whatever comes our way.
Like Zoe I have qualifications in the creative field and would be happy to help with any art based projects you may be doing,
I have also spent two months teaching English, Science and ICT as a school In Nepal, and Have spent two years caring for 4 month old twins -Otto and Nell- so have developed a in-depth knowledge of the needs young children have. On top of this I've worked in a number of different jobs working with the public and am very capable as talking to anyone. I have a number of different sailing qualifications.
