My name is Isobel Crabb. I am Australian, and I live in a smaller city in Australia called Perth - though I spend half of my time in a rural area three hours south. Having grown up with a modern Australian commitment to multicultural and diverse society, over the years I have come to value diversity and mateship in the classroom, to facilitate discussion and give everybody the same opportunities to learn and grow regardless of their circumstances. This is something we Australians like to call 'giving each other a fair go'. This is a really important concept to me and is what drives me in my everyday life to do my part for those who have not had the same opportunities as myself. From an academic perspective, what interests me is how I can inspire other teens to develop a positive attitude towards learning which places value on furthering interests rather than solely on grades. Nowadays, with the pressures on teenagers to prepare for the future and succeed, passion for learning is often sacrificed to achieve. This is why I joined TeenzTalk. I wanted to be able to allow students to not have to compromise an inquisitive mind or their own passions for a final goal that can be very malleable and often many years down the track. Our generation is the one that is going to see a reform in so many spheres of our lives, and it would be a shame if some burned out before being able to fully shine. I hope that by providing advice, sharing my passions, and giving others a 'fair go' I can contribute profoundly to a global community of students hoping to positively impact our world - more than we could possibly imagine.
