How has 2020 been for you?

2020 has felt long. Lots of things have happened really fast. One good thing that happened to me was that I got a dog. He has been a great distraction through lockdown. This year, I’ve learnt to be adaptable.  Nothing is certain and I’ve learnt to just ride the wave.

What has been your biggest success/es in 2020?

This year I’ve onboarded to two different clients completely remotely! It is a weird experience but it makes you more proactive because you have to reach out to people cold without any prior introduction. I’ve been able to make great work relationships this way.

I was chosen to be part of an important project with a really tight deadline which gave me the opportunity to work with a highly experienced IQ team and to really work on my skills as it was all hands on deck.

What are you most looking forward to next year?

I hope next year will be smoother than this year. I’m looking forward to getting married in June and hopefully being able to travel to NZ for my grandfather’s 90th and my cousin’s wedding.

What do you have planned for the Christmas break?

Luckily, the ability to work remotely has allowed me to be able to see my parents in Kingscliff and then be able to fly to Hobart for Christmas day to see my fiancé’s parents. Usually we would only be doing one of these trips. However, with the remote working, we are able to go up earlier than usual.
