Never give up was a phrase that was bounced around a lot when I was growing up. I am 23 now and that phrase continues to echo throughout my life. With a passionate heart and a strong creative streak, I have a heap of ideas on what I want my future to look like.

I currently flat with four others, along with a budgie! We all get along really well and take turns with cooking meals. I have a pretty good grip on what is going on in the flat and feel our weekly meeting helps keeps us all connected. I think growing up on a farm in Geraldine helped me to be organised and know when to muck in to get the job done. I was home schooled till year 11, then finished my schooling at Geraldine High School where I developed my interest in art design.
I achieved my high school studies, passing Level 1, 2, and 3 in Art studies along with high marks in English and Textiles.

One thing I am super proud about is beating my personal best record in shot put and discus. I have a few medals which are hung on my wall in my bedroom. I reckon throwing and stacking firewood would have helped grow my strength and skills in sport, especially for the discus! 

After completing barista training through the Shirley Community Centre, I am now looking to complete my full barista certification through the Crafted Coffee Company. Once certified, I plan to get some work experience in a café where I can work in a team and also on my own.
