    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    I'm an easygoing and sociable girl from Milan, Italy. I'm currently working in an art gallery as an assistant, PR and Press Officer, a job I love and which allows me to travel often both for collaborations and meetings and for the free time I have. I'm trying my best to take the advantage of all the holidays I have to travel, that's why often I can't stay that long, especially during the winter. In summer I usually have a whole month free, which allows me to travel more.

    I also have many other interests: I like drawing and painting in my spare time, as well as reading, practising languages, go hiking or walking in the nature, watching old movies and drinking good wine.

    I stumbled upon workaway by accident and found it great. It's an amazing way to get to know how is living as a local, learn new things and practice languages. My experiences with Workaway have been amazing so far, since it allowed me to experience something very different from my daily routine, which I would have never had the chance to do otherwise, and that's the kind of slow travel I was searching for.

    I'm a very sociable person, I love meeting new people from different countries, exploring new places, trying new things, learning something different and take on new challenges.

    I'm interested in different experiences with Workaway: I studied Corporate Communication and Marketing and I have worked in several places in the field of Communication and Press/Media as an intern. I could offer my skills to help you with building a website or with social media/media relations, even though I would like to do something different during my holidays. I'm interested in working in farms or tourist businesses, as well as in creative centers (focused on meditation, yoga, workshops, etc) or in building projects. I can offer my help in different things: handywork, gardening, administration, general help.

    Looking forward to hearing from you!
