New Starters! May 16

This week we have four new starters at Lexis Byron Bay. Welcome to Simon, Antoine, Blanka and Paola!


Paola is from Brazil where she works as a Forest Engineer. Her job involves studying different species of plants for use in alternative energy, such as bamboo, and their production or destination materials. She enjoys the beach, trees, animals, plants, stones…everything in nature! She also likes doing yoga and loves her pet cat, Mia. Paola chose to study in Australia for the great weather, nature and people that we have to offer here. She hopes to travel in Australia, to the Gold Coast, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, and further abroad to Indonesia and other countries in Asia.

Simon is from Switzerland and lives with his family of four including his mother, brother and dog. He completed an apprenticeship and has been working as an Electrician. When he returns to Switzerland, he will start school to become a Police Officer. In his free time, Simon enjoys sports, such as tennis and snowboarding. He came to Australia to study English because he wants to learn to surf while he is here and would like to travel around the country too.

Blanka is from Italy and has just graduated from the University of Rome with a degree in Biology. She used to compete at an international level in Fencing, but  gave it up to pursue her studies. She will continue her university course in September, studying Neurobiology. Blanka enjoys doing yoga and scuba diving, and is studying at Lexis Byron Bay because she wants to improve her English.

Antoine is from Belgium and has transferred to Byron Bay from Lexis in Brisbane where he started his English studies in Australia.  He is here on a Working Holiday and hopes to find work in Byron Bay.
