India Amos - Volunteering Profile

Freelance journalist, translator, mindful volunteer

About Me

I'm an ENFP and an Aries, and both of these character traits are important to understanding me and how I operate as a traveler. I enjoy my independence and love the freedom of traveling alone, but I also crave a sense of community whenever I relocate to a new location. As a recent college graduate, volunteering abroad has allowed me to truly immerse myself in cultures that are not my own, and I am dedicated to promoting no-harm organizations that provide a valuable, sustainable cultural exchange program for not just the volunteer, but for the local community, as well.

I love learning new languages, and I am fluent in Spanish and conversational in Italian. I've also got a strong writing/communications background, and I have extensive teaching experience with non-English speakers and have worked on several Spanish/English translation projects.

I have volunteered as an ESL intern in rural Ecuador and spent my college years serving as an IFSA-Butler Global Ambassador, where I promoted ethical study abroad programs in over 20 countries around the world.
