  • Profile description
  • Hi everyone! My name is Sara and I'm a student from Oxford, UK. I have travelled a lot in the past and meeting people and building new perspectives on life has always been one of the most important things to me. I am quite studious and am currently doing my MSc in Data Science in the London School of Economics. Since covid has moved teaching online and I am studying part-time, I would like to make the most of this opportunity and experience living in a new community while I complete this course (which I will graduate from in 2022). Since I am studying online and part-time, this also means that I have a lot of time to contribute as a guest and to become a meaningful part of the host's community.

    I would love to find a place where I can live with a household, help around the house and with projects and childcare when needed, and also have time to study and work on my dissertation - so good wifi connection and a desk would be important! I am looking for somewhere I can stay for 2-3 months, so that there is enough time to settle in and get to know the area and the hosts while getting into a rhythm with my studies too (but can be flexible on this).

    I would love to find somewhere in California because I came for a year abroad in UC Berkeley in 2018/19 and loved it! So I am looking to come back to get to know the place even better, reconnect with friends I made and build more of a community here and enjoy more of the California sun and nature!

    I grew up in a multilingual family, having been born in Poland and moving to the UK as a child, so I am familiar with multilingual contexts and would love to share my language skills with hosts and others. I speak Polish, Portuguese and Spanish and have worked as an English teacher in Brazil. Since I'm studying Data Science, I am good with computers so can help with computer-based tasks and would be more than happy to share my programming knowledge and skills with hosts and write useful programmes for anything web-based you might need. I did my bachelors in Philosophy and Politics so I can be abstract and get into good philosophical conversations too :)

    My main hope is to find a base where I can complete my studies for part of the day and help my hosts for the other part of the day, and also travel and see friends and get to the know the area at weekends when time allows. I am a very happy person, curious, studious and optimistic, and have lots of experience travelling and living in new places. As a guest, I am very considerate, tidy and peaceful.
