How old are you?
Have you ever been pulled over by a cop?

Why do you like working with young people?
Young people are fun! I like getting to know people, and I think the younger generation have a lot to teach my generation – they have great ideas.
What is your favourite genre of music?
Alternative? I also love a bit of old school hip hop too.
What school did you go to/where are you from?
Willoughby Girls High School
What do you do when you work? What’s your favourite part?
I develop and run some of the programs that we offer, like volunteering, Girls Only, LGBT groups and any other special events we have on. I also interact with other councils and organisations to work on regional projects. Ummmm…. Running the actual programs when I get to hang out with the young people instead of just planning them is my favourite part. I also love playing SkipBo at drop in haha.
Where’s your favourite place in the world?
A tiny town called Chester in Connecticut, where I worked for almost 6 years. I worked at a traditional American summer camp and loved it so much I never really left, and ended up working for them year round for a while.
