Mary is a wonderful volunteer. She is welcome to come back to us anytime she is free. I cannot recommend her enough to others, if you get a request from Mary then snap her up.

This was one of the best volunteering experiences I have ever had. The contact with nature is incredible and moments of peace are guaranteed. The horses are wonderful, each with its own personality. You help by giving food and cleaning the fields and stables (removing the poo and making the bed of dry straw). The hostess and her family (husband, mother, daughter and son-in-law) are amazing people who will teach you a lot about English culture and curiosities about horses and country life. I am extremely grateful for the experience!

A Mary entende muito bem o valor das experiências colaborativas e soma demais na comunidade. Produziu materiais - tanto artigos quanto vídeos para a WP Academy e outros formatos - incríveis e que ajudam muitas pessoas a entenderem melhor o que a Worldpackers é e o poder de transformação das experiências. Além disso, é uma super parceira: responsável, criativa e proativa. Recomendo muito a Mary! :)

Eu simplesmente amei a vibe do lugar, a atenção e parceria dos anfitriões (Isabela e Marcelo são sensacionais na forma como gerenciam o hostel e como lideram os voluntários). As funções eram muito tranquilas (limpeza dos quartos, banheiros e áreas comuns e ficar na recepção) e super bem divididas. Os horários eram flexíveis e nos permitiam curtir o local. A gente conheceu muitas pessoas legais, eu treinei um pouquinho de espanhol e curtimos muito várias praias de Cabo Frio. Eu super recomendo essa experiência.

Vida Mochileira

Oi! Eu sou a Mary! Sou carioca, publicitária, mergulhadora e produtora de conteúdo. Eu sou apaixonada por viagens de estilo low cost e amo viajar sozinha e fazer voluntariados. Eu já viajei por 28 países e morei em 5 deles. Eu uso as minhas viagens como uma ferramenta de autoconhecimento e aprendizado e gosto de compartilhar esse processo com outras pessoas que estão abertas a aprender coisas novas.

Background

Education

I have a degree in Advertising from Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ - Brazil) and I also have a Divemaster certificate that I took when I did a diving course for 3 months in Thailand.
I also studied English in England for 6 months and I took short courses on social media management, photography, writing, digital marketing, and SEO for blogs.

Work Experience

I worked 7 years in the area of Marketing and Advertising. My main responsibilities were developing strategic plans, budgets and performing research on potential clients.

As well as writing high-quality content together with the PR office. I also needed to help to maximize and coordinate all marketing activities through working closely with the designer team, stakeholders and event managers.

In 2015 I moved to England to study English and I have been working as a babysitter, bartender, waitress, and chef.

In 2019 I quit my job as waitress to focus on my own Travel Blog https://vidamochileira.com.br/ where I share thoughts and tips about traveling, backpacking and how to become an expert traveler.

Travel Experience

I visited 28 countries and lived in 5 of them. Currently, I live in England. I also have done 3 interchanges (U.S.A., Portugal, and England) and 3 work Exchanges (Brazil and France) that transformed my worldview.
