Teresa Papadopoulos: Diploma of Interior Design and Decoration


Teresa Papadopoulos: Hi, my name is Teresa
Papadopoulos. I’m a student at Design Centre Enmore at Sydney TAFE and I’m studying Interior
Design and Decoration. I was working for a big company and I got
sick of the 9-5 job, I wanted something more fun and interesting. I was looking for a career
change and I was looking at different colleges and I spoke to a friend of mine who’s an architect
and he recommended Design Centre Enmore and he told me if I graduated from here I’d be
taken seriously in the industry. I thought it was crazy to change careers and
I was a bit scared and I didn’t think they wanted us older students. TAFE’s a really
supportive environment, so it’s less academic and it’s more hands-on. So I was a bit stressed
about how I’m going to cope with the workload but it’s been very easy. The teachers are amazing. They really love
being here and it really shows in their work. I have the opportunity to finish my diploma
here and last year they became a university certified course, so now they also offer the
Bachelor Degree. I didn’t really understand creativity until
I came here and discovered that it just comes and that we all have it. I actually worried when I finished this course
what I’m going to do of a night time. It’s been such an incredible journey. Instead of
going home and watching the TV I study, which has been fun.
