I have found a role that perfectly suits my experience and knowledge, but most importantly, overlaps with my ultimate passions in life: health and nutrition, and being part of a community that helps children grow, learn and develop to their full potential. It helps that I’m also quite fond of giraffes!
I graduated with a Bachelor of Nutrition degree in 2020 and worked as a primary school teacher aide for eight years.
There was no doubt in my mind when I decided to apply for the health and drug educator role at Life Ed Queensland.
The laughs, the smiles, the questions, the conversations and comments like, ‘Oh, I wish we could stay here for the rest of the day. I want to know more!’ are the absolute highlights of my visits to each school.
“Having the opportunity to empower young minds every day to help children make healthy decisions for a bright, happy and safe future drives me to be the most impactful and engaging educator I can be.”
What’s that saying? If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life!
