    More than happy to be in a company that helps people to make their dreams come true.

    Hi!

    I’m Diana from Sao Paulo, aquarian and sensitive, passionate for reading and in an eternal love relationship with learning new things. After graduate in Economics and work in a private bank for nearly 6 years, some experiences travelling to Europe and around South America, I decided that was time to live my biggest dream, to live abroad.

    When I arrived in Australia, my main goal was to improve my English like almost all students here. What I didn’t know at that time was that my English would be the easiest thing to improve and what I had to learn for real was how to control my feelings, emotions, exercise my kindness and as a result, grow as a person.

    Living in Australia also turned me more Brazilian than ever. Since arrived, I’ve started to do Forró dancing classes, I’m also part of the band Bateria 61 (Brazilian carnival drums) learning new instruments and a challenge that I accepted recently is to learn AcroYoga, working out my body and mind at the same time. Totally in love for all the nature and beauties in Australia, I can tell that’s my place in the world.

    Using my knowledge from my work experience in Brazil, I’m now part of the WEST 1 Team, super proud of this conquest and more than happy to be in a company that helps people to make their dreams come true.

    Brazilian of Italian background, I moved to Sydney in 2017 and already call it home with no plans to leave it.

    Graduated in Social Communication, I specialize in branding, sports events marketing. Here, as a student, I worked as a waitress, barista, educator in elementary schools.

    As Public Relations at WEST 1, I was welcomed and evolved with the conviction that I share with everyone here: a little care and charisma go hand in hand!

    Besides unicorns, of course, I have a passion for traveling, meeting new people and sharing stories.

    Making a difference, working to fulfill dreams and transforming this experience of studying abroad into a beautiful and unforgettable achievement, is incredible!

    I feel super-privileged to be able to help people in the realization of their dreams!

    Rafael Galissi

    Team Leader

    I am Rafa, from São Paulo, Brazil, a lawyer, a profession that I practiced for about 6 years in a large financial institution in Brazil.

    Born and raised in São Paulo, I am fascinated by the ocean and any kind of activity and sports related to it, a passion that certainly was inherited from my father.

    That was the reason for my decision to come to Australia, a country where I could find as many wonderful beaches as we have in our Brazil and at the same time improve my English and live in a country with great potential. Guess what? Passion, love, the sum of all the best feelings between us: Australia and me !!

    Here in Australia, I realized one of the great dreams of my life, living in front of the beach. And I continue to live this dream, every day more impressed with the quality of life, respect among people, immense concern for children and everything! There's definitely nothing like Australia!

    After a few years of struggle, dedication and persistence, and finally today in the WEST 1 family, I feel a super-privileged person to be able to help people in choosing courses and schools, applying for visas and especially in the realization of their dreams!

    Indira Izidoro

    Educational Counsellor

    My name is Indira I'm from São Paulo.

    I’m going to tell you a little bit about my journey so far. 

    I’ve lived in USA for a year as an Au Pair and in France for my MBA.

    I’m graduated in Marketing and Communication and I also have a MBA in International Marketing.

    My work experience was always in between marketing, communication and events.

    I came to Australia in 2016, I felt in love with the country and the people. The language was a challenge in the beginning, but after a couple of months I got used to it. 

    In Australia, I challenged myself working in many different fields - such as waitress, functions and dog walker (the cutest job ever)

    When I'm not at work I’m always with my friends, enjoying the beautiful Sydney landscapes and beautiful beaches, trekking on the many coastal walks around the city, or just having a few drinks or a good meal.

    Being an Educational Counsellor for WEST 1 has been such an amazing opportunity for me. I’m able to help students achieve their goals and find the best studying path for them. Such a rewarding job.

    Paulista, but very peaceful! Crazy about animals, especially dogs, always keen on camping, Sun lover and a big dreamer who loves traveling.

    Graduated in Photography, I decided that I was ready for a life challenge.

    As an only child, I had to do a lot of research about the safest country to live, otherwise mum would have a heart attack! Jokes apart, Australia straight away grew on me.

    In 2014 I came to the Kangaroo Land purely to study English and I ended up amazed by what this country offers to you. Beautiful nature and beaches are just extras!

    I love the idea of walking on the streets not being worried about anything. Not mentioning the festivals around the city, there is always something nice happening. The lifestyle and quality of life here is just unique!

    I made friends for a lifetime, I got to know so many different cultures and found the Aussie of my life.

    Today, as part of West1 Team I could not be happier. I am able to share my love about this country with our students, giving all the support they need and helping them achieve their goals.

    Come and share your adventure with me :)

Sydney is just beautiful!!! Everyone seems very kind, from the few Australians that I met several foreigners from different nationalities. I think there is this vibe that everyone feels sympathy from one another due to the "we have all been there" attitude. The Brazilian community is also very broad and warming as well. I have no words to describe how amazing the WEST 1 staff have been to me. Specially Gabi. She is always "around" offering support and ready to help me as soon as I ask for help, that makes you feel very welcomed, relaxed and confident. So, if my stay is as good as my first weeks, it is going to be an amazing experience!!! 2018-09-29 29.09.2018

Japanese, Korean, Swiss and South American citizen as well.</p><p>It was an amazing experience due to the fact that I had to walk a lot so one of my tips is: always wear a comfortable pair of sneakers otherwise you can get some hurts in your feet.</p><p>During my staying days I could see kangaroos what I have never thought to do in my life.</p><p>My host family was so kind. They never left miss food or structure to feel like in my hometown.</p><p>My main tip is if you want to improve your English you should go to the best school because I saw some Brazilians who I have met outside of the school complaining about the school's structure. On the other hand, if you want to go to earn money you can go to any school.</p> 2017-08-29 29.08.2017
