Elizabeth Tan

Hey everyone, I’m Elizabeth and I'd love to show more of Perth's perks and the events that liven it up to you all! I hope to let all of you connect to Perth better and make great memories in this city which has so much to offer. From quiet havens to unwind from the daily grind to bustling, vibrant hot spots, there’s a place for everyone to embrace Perth’s unique charm(s). I have a passion for artsy things, two of which are drawing and (creative) writing - or any kind of writing, really. I also love reading and the English language!
