Introducing our ENID Ambassadors: gal’s that are on board in spreading the ENID mission around the world.
Introducing… Nikolina, 24 – Weather Presenter/Radio Chick
What did you want to be when you grew up? Just plain ‘famous’ (whatever that meant)
What does ENID mean to you? If ENID was a person it would be that older chick in your life, sister, cool aunty, cousin, friend, that is always stimulating your mind! They always have the answers, they always motivate you to be bigger and better and you always find out about the coolest experiences/most random things from them that you would have never come across if not for them!
P.S. I shamelessly have an instagram for my dog – @rexythestaffy. She is the love of my life!
Introducing… Nicola, 20 – Medical Science Student & AFL Player
What did you want to be when you grew up? I was convinced all throughout primary school that I was going to be a PE teacher. I thought being a PE teacher was the absolute best thing in the world, and this is probably because I thought my PE teacher growing up was the best – I wanted to be just like her. She kept telling me I could do something better, which I’m still not sure I believe…getting to teach kids how to play sport seems like pretty good fun to me! However, I am on a slightly different track studying Medical Science at uni…
What does ENID mean to you? ENID is such a good platform that provides heaps of really useful information for aspiring young girls. It’s so important to hear from other women/girls about their experiences in life, and things they have done that help them to get where they are. I know when I was growing up whenever I got to hear from women I looked up to this meant a lot to me and I really took on board what they said and found that it always helped.
P.S. Words With Friends is my absolute favourite app, and I constantly play against my mum and my grandma. So while most people are checking instagram, if you see me checking my phone it’s probably to see if it’s my go…
Introducing… Margot, 27 years old – Bachelor of Commerce at Monash University. I am currently freelancing, using all the skills I’ve managed to acquire since I started full time work back when I was just 22. I was lucky enough to secure a full time co-operative placement with GM Holden when I was still at Uni, so, after falling in love with the workplace, I decided I never wanted to go back to Uni full time, and continued my career whilst completing my degree part-time. It took me 6.5 years to finish my degree! But I wouldn’t change that for anything!
What did you want to be when you grew up? I was set on studying Neuropsychology and becoming a Psychologist. I loved studying Psych as high school so naturally I thought that would be my destiny. Turns out, you don’t really know what you want to do when your a teenager (I still don’t, let’s be honest).
What does ENID mean to you? To me, ENID takes the clinical nature out of career advice. It’s a network that allows young women to make educated decisions about their future. It’s a very tricky part of life to navigate, and more often than not, young people don’t have the right outlets to seek the advice they need. ENID is changing that.
P.S. I am a total music nerd. At school I played the Violin, Viola and sang. Every single lunch time I would have some kind of commitment, like Orchestra practice or Choir. I also took part in the school musical every year (legit the best times of my life were spent in the musical), and in year 12 I played Gabriella from High School Musical. Needless to say, I’m a die hard musical theatre fan.
Introducing… Sophie, 22 – Advertising Sales @ Channel 7
What did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to be a plastic surgeon.
What does ENID mean to you? A new #girlsquad full of inspiring girls. ENID is also a place to go for advice on life, careers, study and well, everything; the platform where you can get all those questions answered.
P.S. I can balance a spoon on the end of my nose.
