My name is Evelyn, I’m 24 years old and I was born in Australia and now live in New Zealand.
In August 2014 I completed my Disney College Program in Orlando, Florida. I can honestly say this experience changed my life so much; meeting the most amazing people, experiencing living overseas again and, of course, working at the most magical place on earth!
I’m a geek, a bibliophile and an ardent feminist. I believe in social, political and economic equality for everyone.
I have been online since I was a young teenager, starting out blogging on Livejournal where my white teenager-ness really shone through. I’ve come a long way since then, but I still love the same tv shows and books I was writing about then, so maybe I haven’t changed that much.
I taught myself HTML through the Neopets tutorials for my petpages and it all kinda grew from there. I now have a whole collection of websites, all unfinished, and I’m struggling to teach myself Bootstrap, perfect my CSS and get a better grasp on PHP. This is why I regret studying hospitality instead of computer science.
Speaking of which, I currently work as a guest services agent at a five star resort, which is not nearly as fancy as it sounds.
So, my question for this week; How would you introduce yourself at a dinner party? This is one of those situations where you have to sum yourself up into a sentence to a total stranger, which can be super daunting.
For myself, I usually go with, “Hi, my name’s Evelyn and I work at the [name of hotel].”
One day I hope to be able to say “Hi, my name’s Evelyn and I’m an author,” but we’ll see how it goes.
