Courageous of heart and passionate of soul with a love for life, people and nature. My name is Huriana from a beautiful country called New Zealand.

I am looking forward to working with people from different backgrounds, utilising my skills for the benefit of others and learning new skills while enjoying inspirational moments travelling throughout South America.

English is my native language but I really want to improve my spanish whilst exploring and absorbing all that South America has to offer. I am a quick learner, hardworking, work well in a team and on my own and am willing to participate in a variety of tasks, develop skills and increase my knowledge at any opportunity.

My way of life is easy-going and being open to new experiences. I enjoy helping people, and especially working with people in need.

Prior to heading off on my travels I worked for a few years as a dynamic, multi tasking consultant for a global travel company. Skills obtained; telephonist with excellent customer service and computer skills. Processed and finalised passenger tour documents and processed booking payments. As a tour guide I would meet and greet tourists, plan and organise daily activities, provide fun facts as well as historical and cultural information about the destinations we traveled too, while always ensuring passengers were enjoying their touring experience. I did leave the workforce for a while to be a full time mum. While raising my son I studied to become a body therapist eventually qualifying as a Biodynamic Cranio-sacral practitioner and massage therapist, setting up my clinic and providing treatments to people in my community. When I left high school I went to Auckland Teachers training college and became a full time primary school teacher and also taught after school and weekend art workshops for children and adults. I have excellent customer service and computer skills, enjoy tour guide duties and presentations and have spent many hours supporting and helping to organise events for my community; including administration, food preparation, kitchen duties, cash handling and teaching workshops. My cousin has a WWOOFING property on the East Coast of New Zealand in which I have spent time working in the garden, running art and healing workshops and general house cleaning duties for guests. I have a keep it tight attitude in all I do I look forward to my new adventures. I am currently seeking any opportunity to contribute my time, skills and talents in any way I can Thank you
