Coming from an extremely close-knit family, Georgia found the distance and limited contact – a phone call just once a week or the odd letter – a challenge in itself. “I don’t think I’ll do anything as hard as that again mentally as well as physically,” Georgia says. “At the end you’ve got so much confidence because you have just pushed yourself above and beyond the limit. You feel like ‘right now I can do anything because I’ve come this far’.”
After the initial training, Georgia was posted to Brisbane where she worked in stores for the remainder of her year away.
At 19 she returned to Traralgon and her family, and has marched right into a new career with Scribblevision.
Georgia is our new administration trainee – the friendly voice on the end of the phone when you call the studio, the deliverer of good news – “your business cards are in” – and the one who keeps all the rest of us creative types in check. We hope this will be the start of a long and happy career in creative digital development.
Georgia impressed us instantly with her professionalism, can-do attitude and broad smile, an asset she nurtures with plenty of shopping (“I’m a shopaholic, but at least I can admit it”), dirt-bike riding (“falling off is frequent. I’ve just got a new bike and I’m not used to the power”) and a love of photography (“I like capturing people’s emotions and their qualities”).
We’re betting that, when you next step into the Scribblevision studio, you’ll be impressed with Georgia’s beaming dial and genuine enthusiasm too.
