Christine Della Vedova is a teacher, a student of life and a self-confessed word nerd. She has written singles ads for the lonely and horny. She has taught English to kids in Korea and Peru, and tai chi to seniors. She once built a 6 metre Chinese Dragon. Recently the Business and Professional Women's Association named her their Young West Australian Woman of the Year. Now she teaches refugee and migrant children and says she cannot think of a more fulfilling career.
PS We like her poems :-)
