Tell us a little about yourself

My name is Rafaela Steiner, I’m from Brazil, I’m 17 years old. I live in São Paulo. I graduated from high school this year and didn’t want to go to university, so my parents sent me to school in Australia to improve my English. I like reading, listening to music and the park.

How is Elwood College different from your school at home?

The uniforms, the way we socialise with the teachers, also the classes are very different - we have one class in Brazil for all the subjects. In Brazil the teacher changes, but here the student changes class.

What do you most like about being here?

The freedom I have here to do stuff - it’s secure.
