This month may be one of our favourite interviews so far. We sent 2 of our team members Shirley and James to Vietnam to discover hosts away from their laptops. Little did they expect to meet such an amazing 12-year old girl and our youngest ever host-- ok, her family are the one that are actually hosting, but she loves Workaway so much we just had to interview her!
