Interests

About Me...

I am a keen explorer and photographer and have travelled to various parts of the world. Travelling by myself on each of my adventures has helped me to become the confident and independent person that I am. Experiencing life in different countries and cultures has helped me to be more understanding, caring and non-judgemental when interacting with others. It has increased my desire to look out for and to teach those in my local community. I have recently arrived in Australia, from England, on a Working Holiday Visa. I am ready to share my knowledge and skills within my next place of employment and am equally ready to learn from those I will be working with.
