Meet Our Entertainers: Eileen!
This week I am introducing you to the wonderful Eileen, who is one of our fabulous Puddles kids party entertainers!
How long have you been working for Puddles? Not very long, actually! Since February, I believe. Ben Noble is my housemate, he’s been working at Puddles for nearly two years now, and I asked him to put me in contact with Aleks because he always came back with these great stories about the parties he worked.
What do you do outside of entertaining at Puddles childrens parties? I go to Mountview Academy for acting, along with a lot of my coworkers! I’m a newbie playwright, we’ve just started getting the gears in motion to take my first play to the Free Fringe in Edinborough this summer. And I play volleyball occasionally, but that’s just a hobby.
What is your favourite thing about working for Puddles? The atmosphere; I love everyone I get to work with and the parties always have such a fun, outgoing energy. And the kids are adorable, of course.
What is your favourite memory from a birthday party you've entertained at? I loved entertaining at a superhero party where I found out that the family was from Canada, not far from where I grew up! It was such a lovely bonding moment and the kids were so excited about it (plus I got to be Wonder Woman).
What is your favourite party game? Musical Statues; hands down. I love the range of dance styles.
What was your dream job growing up? Marine biologist (but I didn’t want to do any of the paperwork; just the scuba-diving and picture-taking).
If you could have any super power, what would it be? Breathe and see underwater; it would really assist my marine biology career.
Describe yourself in 4 words. Creative, excitable, happy, determined!
I hope you've enjoyed getting to know Eileen! Keep checking back for next week's exciting blog...
