Meet Mamiko, our friendly new staff member, from Japan
This week we would love to introduce you to Mamiko. Mamiko arrived here with lots of experience working for ESL schools in New Zealand and Sydney. You can see Mamiko working behind her desk at the BBELS reception office 5 days a week. She is always ready to have a friendly chat with our students.
What is your role here at BBELS:
I work in Student Services, Administration, Japan Marketing
Where are you from? How is your life in Byron Bay different from your life back in your hometown?:
I am originally from Japan but I lived in New Zealand for many years before coming to Australia.
Byron Bay is very different from Tokyo (Japan) where I grew up till I was 18 years old. Byron Bay has just the right amount of shops, restaurants and cafes and a lot of nature which I feel comfortable living in
whereas Tokyo is overcrowded with many buildings and people.
What advice would you like to give our students at BBELS?:
Enjoy every new experience and challenge, especially enjoy meeting new people in Byron Bay.
Where are some of your favourite places to spend your free time in Byron Bay?:
The Pass/Wategos Beach are perfect places to swim, read books, and sun bathe. I also love looking at the vinatge shops and the beach at Brunswick Heads.
