Instructor Intro: Susy Stokes
Kia ora team, I’m Susy one of your program instructors, along with Karlee. I’m currently chilling out in one of the many beautiful awe-inspiring spots we are going to spend time, adventure and come to love over our semester together - Cresent Head in Australia. I love it because it’s a small town with a incredible nature around it on land and sea, what more could you ask for.. oh and awesome people too!
I come from a city in New Zealand which is more likely the size of one of your towns! I grew up across the road from the beach so my childhood, teens and adulthood have all been based around the ocean and getting outside. The time spent with the ocean has made me very protective of her, especially keeping our oceans clean from harmful plastics. You’ll see how awesome our oceans are and I’m sure fall in love with them too!
I’ve cruised around and lived in a few different places around New Zealand and Australia which I’m really looking forward to sharing with you guys. Our trip is going to take us on many wee adventures so pack an open attitude, a positive mind set, and a thirst to explore the unknown! No worries if you haven’t got all of these yet… that’s what we are here to help you with!
If you feel nervous or get butterflies when you think about the Semester over here…embrace it. That feeling is gold and means you have chosen to do something amazing!
Can’t wait to meet you all and start our adventure.
