What is your favourite thing about the Western Downs region?
My favourite thing about the Western Downs is the community involvement and open facilities. The region provides so many opportunities for all ages to get involved and really be an active part of the community.
What has surprised you the most about doing work experience in a newsroom?
The thing that surprised me most about doing work experience in the newsroom is how quickly changes have to be made due to deadlines and breaking news updates. The employees have to be really clear with their communication and use critical thinking in timely situations.
Who would you want to play you in a movie of your life?
Anne Hathaway. We are nothing alike, however she has always been my favourite actress.
Is there anything you wished would come back into fashion?
Definitely socks and thongs (that’s if they were ever considered fashionable). There is nothing worse in winter then having to run down to the shops in closed shoes so that you don’t embarrass your siblings. Bringing them back into fashion would be super convenient for this winter.
What three things do you think of most each day?
So many things rush through my head each day but the top three would definitely be: If I was in Europe what time would it be? What’s for dinner tonight? And last but not least, what do I have to do before tomorrow?
What do you consider is the most important appliance in a house?
Phone chargers as much as I hate to admit it. In the modern technological world a phone is an everyday necessity whether it be used in terms of work, catching up with friends or family, alarms, weather updates, the list goes on.
If you could time travel, what historical period would you like to visit?
The age of enlightenment, purely because society began to reform using reason. Ideas, traditions and faiths were challenged and scientific evidence began to become more significant in society. It promoted scientific thought, revolutionising society and I would have liked to witness such a significant change in the world.
If you were prime minister/ruler of the world, what laws would you make?
If I was ruler of the world I would enforce similar laws as there are today, though I would focus more on the environmental aspect. Not enough political energy goes towards the preservation of the environment.
