Matea is a 19 year old German who recently returned from 8 months in Australia. Since she’s been home, Matea has been working as a waitress and barmaid at a hotel, whilst she figures out what next step she wants to take in life.
Matea decided against going straight to university after High school, mainly because she couldn’t imagine being tied down to one city for the next 3 years of her life. So just like so many young Europeans, she decided to head off to the other side of the world to have some fun!
Living and travelling around Australia was a life changing experience for Matea. It’s given her clarity on what she wants to study next as well as teaching her so many lessons about life itself, as backpacking so often does.
“Through travel you can learn so much about yourself and others. it seems like an absolutely necessary thing for me to do”
Matea joined Edumadic because she wanted to continue learning about the world through travel, but also wanted to start learning about Environmental Science, something that sparked her interest whilst in Australia.
Matea is studying Marine and Antarctic Science remotely via a course put together by the University of Tasmania.
