    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    I am an architect from Porto, Portugal. I lived 4 years in Mozambique doing some volunteer work as a project leader and then trying to build a community school.

    Last year I worked in two earthbuilding projects helping to design them, but unfortunately I have no practical experience (I am interested in helping and learning more)

    But recently I realized that my skills are more oriented to managing projects and not so much the design and creative part, although I would still love to work in art projects, specially community projects, just not as a designer, but maybe as a project manager, building the bridge between the community and the designers since I love working directly with people.

    So I decided to take a gap year to try to figure out how to change my professional path and I choose India because is a country that has always fascinated me culturally.
