Why do you like working at EIM?
I came to EIM for tutoring when I was an awkward year 9 student. Over the past 5 years, EIM has become a second home and I honestly could not see myself working anywhere else. The team at EIM is a super happy family which I am very lucky to be a part of. I am able to do what I really enjoy and have a lot of fun managing the creative side of EIM.
What was your favourite subject to learn in high school?
To be honest I loved all the subjects I did in high school, otherwise I wouldn’t have picked them – except for English; English was forced upon me but I didn’t hate it. I haven’t touched any science or maths since the HSC, and I actually do miss it quite a lot.
If you could move anywhere in the world where would it be?
It is my goal in life to live in Manhattan in New York. I want to live there for at least a year or two after I finish my degrees (provided I have enough money to survive there for that long). New York is one of my favourite places in the world and I really hope living there fulfils my Gossip Girl dreams.
If you could time travel, would you go into the future or the past?
I don’t think I would be able to choose, but if I had to, I would probably want to go back to the 1920s because of all the Gatsby vibes – all the glitter and all the jazz and parties.
What is something you can’t live without?
My phone, definitely. I have my phone on me at all times – how else would I maintain my Instagram aesthetic and keep all my Snapchat streaks? And also caffeine – my body functions on coffee and tea!
Behind the scenes at EIM, we have an incredible team of people who strive to help you do the best you can. This blog series helps you get to know all the people who contribute to the amazing learning experience for every student who walks through our doors. Stay tuned to meet the rest of the team!
