Who Am I?
I, Casey Hawkins, want to develop positive connections with everyone I meet. I believe that forming new relationships means allowing people to enter my personal world. The Who section of the site is written in first-person perspective, not only because I wrote the content, but because I want those reading to know that I’m an approachable person—not an entity in the background.
I grew up immersed in Australia’s sea, sun and surf culture. I first became a teacher because I always got a great buzz from sharing ideas and experiences with others. Teaching has led me to explore some unique, remote locations and develop friendships with people from all walks of life.
I recently moved back to my home town in Australia after living in wondrous Tokyo. Over the past 12 months, I’ve been fortunate enough to work as a freelance writer and educator. Working in the creative arts and education industry propels my natural curiosity and desire to connect with a diverse range of people.
