Tell us about yourself and how you got here.

I am from New Zealand and have been here for about 8 years. I come from an amazing large family, and that was the main reason for me moving here. I followed my sister as I had missed seeing my nieces and nephew growing up. To move from another country was a really big step for me, but I have never looked back.

Can you tell us something cool about your local area?

There are a few good walking tracks along the river, which has some pretty cool dog exercise areas, that aren't hugely populated by other dogs, we also have some pretty cool areas where you can go kayaking.

How would your best friend describe you in 5 words?

Funny, Caring, Spontaneous, Happy go lucky and Loyal

Pretty much the best song in the world is….

A Woman’s Worth – Alicia Keys

What is your favourite way to spend a Saturday?

Curled up somewhere quiet reading a book, and face timing my parents

What is one of your favourite quotes?

Be who you are and say what you feel cause those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind – Dr Seuss
