What’s it like to study while you’re working as an educator?
While studying two days a week at university, I worked three days as an educator. I compared my experiences in the workforce by reflecting and analysing during university classroom discussions.  This strongly intensified my knowledge and expertise in Early Childhood Education.

What was your favourite subject at school, and why?
My favourite subject at school was Psychology because it involved subjects including human behaviour, psychological development and variety of models to explain learning. My interest in child development and psychology began with this subject.

If you were a three-year-old today, what element of early learning and care would you love the most?
I would love to explore arts and craft activities again and having the educators to encourage my interest in art further. The element of being creative and messy with art, with no restrictions or expectations placed upon me, would be amazing!
