A Little More Personal; Global Whispers

I never planned to have this section on my site. I thought readers would be more interested in the facts and places I wrote about rather than myself and my own experience. But after some time I’ve realised that my experiences are the places I write about, it’s my site to inform you all on so why not tell you all about my life, experiences and thoughts?

I thought I’d start of with telling you guys a few fun facts about myself, so you get to know me a bit better and understand the person behind the posts and stories by Global Whispers:-

  1. I was born and raised on the Gold Coast

    Born in July, 1991 I have lived majority of my life on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. I did however live just near Dandenong in Victoria for 2 years of my childhood when my whole family chose to relocate. We did in the end move back to the Gold Coast and it is definitely home. I love it here, the weather is phenomenal, the area is beautiful and I’m surrounded by my family and friends that I have grown up with since I was about 10 years old. The Gold Coast is home, but admittedly, I’m always dreaming of travelling elsewhere.

  2. I have a fear of heights

    I’m absolutely terrified! I used to get nervous just standing on the balconies of the third floor of my high school looking down. Not to mention I sat gripping a chair the entire time I was on the London Eye because I was afraid to stand and look outside (plus there were a bunch of school children inside our pod running around and rocking it.. grrrr!). I do however want to Skydive, love flying (short-haul at least) and recently went on a ferris wheel at Disneyland and could look outside without freaking out, although I purposely chose a pod that wouldn’t swing ;).

  3. I have a Business Degree

    I chose to go straight from graduating high school into higher education studies at university. My grades at school were good enough to well and truly secure my spot in a Bachelor of Business at Griffith University on the Gold Coast. I chose to major in both Events Management and Marketing and after 3 years graduated without failing a class (something I’m super proud of and at one point was almost convinced I’d failed, oops). Although since graduating I haven’t used my degree as such and I’m not entirely sure what I will do, I’ll figure it out… eventually. I gained a wealth of knowledge and experience from studying and don’t regret it at all.

  4. I love Disney

    If you’ve read some of my posts you’ll notice some Disney references or even whole posts about the amazingness of Disneyland. Otherwise, my friends know that I am the Disney guru, my collection is ever-growing and my favourite character has got to be, hands down, Pegasus from Hercules. He’s just so cute!

  5. I still live at home

    I’m 23 years of age and have never lived out of home. This is for a few reasons but mainly because saving to travel is a whole lot easier when you don’t have to pay huge rents and extra bills. I do still pay board and I definitely pay for my own bills and expenses, but at the end of the day, I don’t really have a reason to leave when I have it so good and can save much more travel money.

  6. I’m a huge Taylor Swift fan

    I’ll never deny it or be ashamed! 🙂 A lady I used to work with told me that ‘whenever she hears Taylor Swift on the radio or TV she thinks of me’. That is how often I would bring up her songs, albums, tours, video clips or just the lady herself. I don’t care what the haters say, Taylor Swift is a great role model, is still so young and incredibly successful for what she does. Kudo’s to her, she’s worked incredibly hard for what she has!

  7. I used to be brunette

    I finally chose to drastically change my hair colour in year 12 and chose to keep it that way for a few years (as you’ve probably seen in some of my photos). I loved it and will probably change back one day when I’m sick of maintaining my blonde hair, but for now its a fun past fact about me!
