Teacher, hockey player and adventurer extraordinaire, Lexie girl Clarissa is currently half way across the world (check her awesome holiday pics below) but we managed to ask a few questions and find out what being a Lexie girl is all about…
Tell me us how you got into your line of work?
“I always had an interest in geography and the environment so decided to study it further. Teaching was always something that stuck out to me and I decided to do a course on that and here I am, loving my job and being able to share my passion with others”
What is the strangest sport you have ever tried?
Not sure really, I love doing long jump and hockey but I’ve recently found a passion for adventure courses and tackling the mud so I guess that’s a bit strange?
If you were in the Olympics, what sport would you want to compete in?
“Long jump or hockey I think. Leaning slightly towards hockey as it’s a team sport and I love being in those sort of environments.”
When you were younger, what did you want to be when you grew up?
“An athlete really but I also loved the idea of being a teacher. Stuck with the second one and here I am!”
And finally Clarissa what does your future hold?
“I’m really enjoying my current job so I would ideally want to keep progressing in this line of work. Also keep active and try out even more sports and challenges.”
