Meet our newest addition to the Klick family – Amy! To give everyone the chance to know Amy better we asked her a few questions:
Q: What’s the last book you read? A: I’m not a huge book reader, but the last book I remember being totally engrossed with was the Iliad when I studied it at college. I loved learning about all the famous characters from the Trojan War and having all of the events being untold in such a beautiful way by Homer.
Q: If you could be any animal what would you be? A: A bird, so I would be able to fly wherever I want.
Q: Where’s your favourite place in the world and why? A: Devon – I lived there for 3 years whilst at university and nothing beats a Devonshire cream tea and scone! It’s like a second home to me and I’d love to live there again one day, perhaps when I retire.
Q: What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done? A: Riding in a hot air balloon with my family when I was about 10 years old. We reached a height of around 1000 ft and went up in the clouds! It was possibly one of the most exhilarating moments of my life, especially the landing manoeuvre!
Q: What is your pet peve? A: People who put the milk in a cup of tea first (there is no excuse!)
Q: What is your secret talent no one knows about? A: I’m not sure if it’s a secret in my family, but I can bake a mean lemon drizzle cake! I’m looking forward to making some for any birthdays and occasions to bring into work!
Q: What series are you currently watching? A: I recently watched a series called The OA on Netflix and I’m recommending it to everyone! It’s definitely a ‘more to it than meets the eye’ kind of series, and that’s why I love it. It’s about a blind girl who went missing in her late teens, who shows up back at her hometown, unexplainably now being able to see. She tells no one about what happened to her – not even her family – except for five strangers. It’s so mysterious and ends up being a philosophical eye-opener! Definitely worth a watch (even though its now been cancelled after 2 seasons ☹).
Q: What are you passionate about? A: I’ve been passionate about anything archaeological ever since I was little, which is in part why I decided to study it at university. I am constantly keeping up with new archaeological discoveries reported in the news and I love watching documentaries on the subject on TV.
Q: Who inspires you? A: My biggest inspiration in life would have to be my parents! They have worked so hard to provide for me and make me the person I am today, and for that I am forever grateful (and in debt!) to them.
Q: What’s your favourite thing about Klick so far? A: The atmosphere. Everyone at Klick encourages and helps each other out and it really feels like a family here!
It’s great to have you on board Amy, you’ve fit into our family already!
