Hi everyone, my name is Paula Zelenka and I will be studying with QC Event School to gain my certification in Event and Wedding Planning, Destination and Luxury Weddings plus Event Decor.

I live in the town of Mackay situated within the tropical north of Queensland, Australia and surrounded by beautiful beaches and within driving distance to the magical whitsundays.

I was a qualified primary school teacher and working in the industry up until a year ago when I decided a needed to take a break from the classroom. I always had a passion for event planning, always planning milestone celebrations for friends and family, and knew deep down that I always would at some point I'd get my qualifications. But as everyone knows; life so gets complicated and before we all know it time has flown by until we stop for a moment to think about that dream we had once, that dream still fixed in our hearts, ever the same. Well, one day I was standing in front of the whiteboard in the classroom and it dawned on me, that not only was I unhappy as a teacher but that I wasn't get any younger so I thought that now is better than never.

For the last three or four so years, I've been studying graphic design and although I love it, I wanted to step away from it and get my certification with event planning then go back and finish graphic design.

I am really looking forward to this course and I hope this all works out really well.
