I've been traveling solo for quite a while and although I am in love with my own company, it would definitely be chill be surrounded by a like minded person or people! British born American female who is based in Ventura, California, but living in Connecticut until June 2018. I am looking to hit the road again after that!
Currently: New Haven, CT
Please allow me to introduce myself, my name is Eliza MacLeod and I am a senior at Pennsylvania State University on track to graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Psychological Life Science through the online World Campus. Three and a half years at this institution has molded my brain to think abstractly with an in-depth understanding of human nature, which could become a valuable asset to my work in interacting as your HelpX volunteer!
I'm a nomad. I moved to San Diego, California in the beginning of 2017, after solo backpacking through Europe. I left San Diego the beginning of June to work on the northeast USA, Nantucket Island, Massachusetts and Lake Placid, New York.
In August I made my way around South East Asia to embark on a spiritual journey of self discovery, empowerment and cultural integration.
After finding myself this past year I have realized that I am extremely fascinated with a variety of things one being sustainability. I am looking to start an online masters program at Penn State University in Renewable Energy and Sustainability Systems. While it is my goal to work on self-sustaining properties to gain in field experience while learning in the online classroom. I can offer access to world class information, as together we work on building a brighter future for our planet.
Some of my experience with work exchange in the past includes six months in Europe working in hostels, book stores and as a social media and marketing representative in a multitude of destinations. I additionally worked as an au pair in Milan, Italy for over 4 months.
In the past I have also focused on working with influential nonprofit organizations. This is simply because of my fascination associated with helping the global community.
My background also includes serving as a customer service and sales associate in multiple retail environments. In addition to summers interning at an international marketing firm. I can most definitely help you build on your internet presence! I currently work for an international marketing firm that focuses on healthy food alternatives, while working in childcare as a nanny (I have for over 7 years).
Previous to this position I was employed as the Assistant to the Dean of Facilities at American International College. I was able to further develop my understanding of marketing, as my responsibilities included assisting in the rebranding of the institution.
I am an extremely driven and insightful being. While staying and working with you, I will also be finishing my degree (internet is a must), but I will also be working on my personal branding through Instagram, twitter and blogging. Although I am still in the early stages of all, I am confident that this next trip will gain a multitude of followers that will help your growing business and help educate the outside world on your respective culture!
I am confident that I can offer you the creativity and professional dedication that will allow for me to become a reliable leader in your community no matter how much time I spend. I cannot wait to help in more ways than one, while I ultimately gain far more than I can ever give. I am looking for an experience of a lifetime on a local level.
Thank you for your time and I truly look forward to learning more about you!
