  • Description

    Hi, I'm Karina! Welcome to my profile :)

    Learning new things and helping others with my skills is what I want to do and Workaway is the perfect opportunity do exactly that. I recently quit my longterm job as a Graphic Designer to travel the world and do the things I love. I am passionate about Yoga, (Wind-) Surfing and other action sports, travelling, the outdoors, a healthy lifestyle, but also about tech, music, art & design.

    Friends say I am easy-going and fun, but also down-to-earth. I am a peaceful and polite person, reliable and organized, trying to tackle every task with positivity, especially when I try something for the first time.

    With Workaway I would love to make new friends and learn as much as I can... not only about each project and the given tasks, but also new languages and about the culture of every place. I want to experience how it really is to live like a local.
