For the past 8 months I have travelled and worked throughout America, Canada, The United Kingdom and Europe. This experience enhanced my problem solving skills, adaptability, organisation and communication with people from various backgrounds. Reading and writing is a passion of mine. I understand the importance of providing children with a rich literacy setting. One day I wish to write my own children’s book. Over the past 4 years I have been a member of various sporting clubs and have participated in the following sports; netball, rugby, tennis and basketball. I am interested in coaching and extracurricular clubs. I have a strong interest in design, arts and crafts and creating inviting environments. Making a difference in the world is important to me. I have volunteered for the Red Cross Blood Donation, BSA SAFE group for equality and diversity at La Trobe University Bendigo and Wombat Corner Camp for disadvantaged children. Music, singing and performance Is a fantastic outlet for myself and previously I have organised an end of year concert for the Kindergarten children to perform some of their favourite songs.
