Introducing one of our new recruits - Angie!

Written on May 30, 2017

This week we caught up with Angie, who is currently training to be an Invisible (Edinburgh) guide.

Our Founder Zakia asked Angie a few quick questions over a cup of tea at Invisible (Edinburgh) head-quarters:

Hey Angie, would you like to introduce yourself?

"Good day Mate! How you going? I am Angie and I am from Oz but I have lived in Edinburgh for 5 years.

"I am still here after all this time because I love the arts and Edinburgh is the festival city! I came here to be close to my daughter but I stayed because I love it!

"I've continued my love for the arts right through my life from where I began as a drama teacher."

Why did you decide to get involved with Invisible (Edinburgh)?

"I'm a trained teacher and being a tour guide, giving people information from a different angle is not that different."

"I don't know what will come out of it but I want to try. I liked the training, you cant expect people to take others on a tour without giving them tools to do it well."

What do you expect from becoming a tour guide soon?

"I want to enthuse people about everything Edinburgh has to offer. There are so many things to do here - hidden stuff! I want to make them aware of all the possibilities the city has to offer!"

Stay tuned for news of Angie's first tour, we'll be backing a big announcement very soon. Can you guess what it will be about?
