What's the best trip you’ve ever been on?

My most recent trip to the USA. I spent 5 weeks over there starting from the east coast and moving across the country to end up in my favourite city, New York. I'm a big fan of sightseeing, sports, food and shopping, so it was the perfect holiday.

I enjoy reading a good book, going for a walk with my dog, Milo and trying new recipes.

If you were a student at Carmel, what would you contribute to CAPA – our academy of performing arts?

I enjoy being creative and often work on art projects at home, so definitely something in the visual art space.

What’s one amazing thing about you that we wouldn’t have found out from your CV?

I have travelled to over 15 different cities worldwide.

What’s the most recent book you’ve enjoyed?

Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey - definitely influenced by Debra Karro, but has very inspiring words and lessons to learn.

What are you looking forward to, in 2024?

Collaborating with my amazing Year 1 teacher, Deb Karro and officially being part of the Carmel school team.
