How long have you lived in Parkes and what do you like most about living here? I have lived in Parkes my whole life, with a few short stints in Newcastle, Geraldton, and Rockhampton. I enjoy living in a regional town, where during tough times, the community comes together to support those in need.
Where do you work or what do you do currently and what do you enjoy about it? I am currently studying a Bachelor of Communications, majoring in Public Relations, through correspondence.
What is your favourite thing to do when you have free time? Spending time with my friends and family, taking photographs, baking, playing sport, listening to music. The list could keep going!
What makes you proud? My family. We’ve gone through so much, but have always been there for each other.
If you could be an animal which one would you choose, and why? I would be a Quokka, as they are one of the happiest animals. Despite its vulnerable status
of extinction, they aren’t scared of humans. Plus, they are great at selfies!
What is your all-time favourite movie, song and/or book, and why? Right now my list includes: Movie: My Best Friend’s Wedding; Song: Soon You’ll Get Better –
Taylor Swift; Book: The Year of the Farmer by Rosalie Ham.
Tell us about your best holiday. Spending three months travelling around Europe with my Mum in 2012 visiting my eldest sister, Steff. I particularly loved Scotland and Germany!
What is on your bucket list? I would love to go swimming with pigs in the Bahamas! No one is certain of how the pigs first arrived there. When the pigs hear the motors of the boats, they come running out of the forest, across the beach, and into the turquoise waters.
