So, do you feel like I am qualified enough to be doing what I am doing?
But, let’s get back to the real me
I love my family. Family is of up most importance to me. There is nothing more precious in life than having a loving and supporting family, and I truly cherish this.
Happily married :) that’s all I will say here, so please DO NOT send me emails requesting marriage, love etc... as I will get my husband onto you! You have been warned! :)
Sports is something I love. I left this out in my profile, but I am also a tennis coach! As a child I played at a national level in Australia, and absolutely love the sport! I began coaching tennis at the age of 16 and stopped at 22. A pity really, as I really loved doing this… anyone up for a tennis match, feel free to give me a shout out :)
I am from Melbourne, Australia. Australian born and breed, though living in Croatia. Why Croatia many people ask? Well..... why not? Have you ever typed Croatia in Google search? If you haven’t please do so, and you will understand why I love living here. Disclaimer warning: I am also married to a Croat, so I’m kinda stuck here :P
I love traveling. As part of my Bachelors degree, I had the privilege of traveling to Beijing, China, and I completed my Master in Dijon, France. I have traveled to many countries. Those being: Bosnia, Croatia, Australia, China, France, Austria, Slovenia, Slovakia, Germany, Switzerland, Hungary. I hope to travel more in the future!
I do not tolerate lazy people, people who complain, people who do not have goals and are not driven. I am putting this out here as a word of warning! If you are a lazy person and will constantly email me asking for questions, which I have clearly answered, then you will never ever become neither fluent nor proficient in English! I can teach you, motivate you, guide you + much more.... but at the end of the day it is all really up to you!
Language learner. Do you know how hard it is to learn Croatian? just search on the internet a Croatian course, and there is limited possibilities to learn this language. I struggled, hustled and somehow became fluent in Croatian!
