Would love a free spirited, nomadic soul to accompany me on this journey! Always down for philosophical conversation, adventuring, good food, beautiful landscapes, and great company!
I have studied Political Science with a particular interest in the refugee crisis and global politics/immigration. Always looking for new perspectives and those who are interested in volunteer work. I love hiking, art, cooking, writing, gardening...much more. Also looking to improve my Italian and Spanish speaking skills.
Looking to work starting April, 2019
I'm currently living in Arcata, California in the United States. I'm originally from San Francisco.
I am very creative and artistic~ I love illustration, design, printmaking, painting, embroidery, and sewing. I enjoy engaging in political and philosophical conversation and meeting people from all over the world. In my free time I like hiking, biking, cooking, journaling, reading, and live music. I also have a deep passion for writing and I hope to document snippets of the lives of people from all walks of life who I encounter throughout my adventures. I've come to hold great respect for the ability to be conscientious, open-minded, and a critical thinker and I do my best in life to be as loving, caring, and compassionate of a person as I can be. We have so much to learn from each other--and in my opinion, thats one of the greatest parts of being human. I am excited for all the helpX experiences to come!
Currently, I do administrative support for the Masters of Social Work program at Humboldt State University in Northern California. I've also just opened my own small business selling my art. I'm planning on leaving my admin job in March to begin on a new journey, traveling and pursuing a path more catered to who I am and what I value.
I've interned at the Foreign Affairs Office in Chiang Mai, Thailand and for USAC in Galway, Ireland, taking photographs and writing blog posts about my experiences.
I worked at a French Bakery and multiple Italian Pizzerias, doing customer service, food preparation, and cleaning.
I did a HelpX work exchange in Ipoh, Malaysia at the Bed, Bike and Backpackers Hostel. My duties included checking in guests, cleaning the common-areas, changing linens, and watching over the hostel while the manager was gone.
I did gardening work in Inverness, Scotland. Mainly weeding, clearing debris, harvesting and mowing.
I speak fluent English and some very basic Italian. I am looking to improve my Italian and Spanish.
I graduated from the University with a Bachelors degree in Political Science and a minor in Philosophy at Humboldt State University in Northern California. I am hoping to pursue a Master's degree sometime in the next 5 years.
I also lived in Rome, Italy for 5 months and Chiang Mai, Thailand for 4 months, and Galway, Ireland for 6 weeks studying Eastern and Western Politics and Philosophy.
