Who is your chosen charity? 
Can Assist Young. Can Assist provide direct financial assistance to people in country NSW affected by cancer.

What are your interests? 
In my spare time I enjoy making music. I’m a passionate singer and I am always making noise. I would be lying however, if I said I didn’t love chilling out watching movies. I’m a real social butterfly and love spending time with my friends.

What do you love about the National Cherry Festival?
The National Cherry Festival is by far one of my favourite yearly events. I love how much it brings our community together. We all come together to celebrate something wonderful.

What do you enjoy about living in the Hilltops region?
Living in Young I must say I thoroughly love how equipped we are for a small town. Our vast range of schools, medical facilities and extracurricular activities proving what a great town we are. However, Youngs’ greatest trait would be now how supportive we are of each other. Lending a hand when businesses charities and families are in need.

Looking ahead, what are your plans for the future?
In the future I look forward to following a path of helping people in need. I wish to complete a Bachelor of Social Work to help struggling men, women and children live happy lives in safe environments.

Young Community Chest, which is a charity that helps people in our local community who are in crisis or necessitous circumstances when other avenues of assistance are exhausted.

What are your interests?

What do you love about the National Cherry Festival?
I love the way so many members of our community get involved in the festival from performance to presentations, to activities that cater for people of all ages and interests.

What is the best thing about living in the Hilltops region?
I enjoy experiencing each of the seasons, particularly the falling leaves in Autumn , to the golden canola in Spring. I also love getting to know the friendly people in the Hilltops Region who I have come to know through community activities.

What are your plans for the future?
I would love to continue teaching and inspiring the students who come my way. I would also like to travel whenever I get the opportunity.
