I'm currently on a solo journey through South America, with the intention to acquire new skills, learn more about myself and connect with people from different cultural backgrounds. I am so appreciative of all the lovely, inspiring souls I have met this far and believe that there is something to be learned by every new experience and encounter that crosses my path.
My friends often refer to me as "sunshine" because I always have a smile on my face, I have a warm, encouraging approach to other people and I love to live a passionate, colourful life. I'm the type of traveller who likes to find a place I resonate with and make it my home for a little while, as it allows me to connect more deeply with people and live in the moment instead of always planning ahead.
I practice yoga and meditation regularly, and appreciate places that value these practices. I also love adventure, dancing, cooking and anything crafty. I am always open to learning new skills and have found volunteering to be a perfect way to do this. I try to find value in even the most mundane tasks so am willing to try anything and help where needed.
I have a degree in Anthropology and development studies and was working with international students at the university and as an administrator for a start up before I left NZ. This has given me practical experience with people, problem solving, budgeting, event management and general computer skills.
I hope I can be of help to you!
