What is your favourite band?
Well ... this is a hard question. I don’t think I really have a favourite band. I like to listen to all types of music and lots of bands but I do have to say that I love a good Queen jam.
Favourite genre ...
My favourite genre of music would probably have to be musicals. I love musicals. Any and all. My favorites at the moment are the Broadway musicals Hamilton and Dear Evan Hansen.
Favourite instrument ...
My favourite instrument would have to be, probably, the harp or the piano. I love the sound of the harp. It is so quiet, soothing, and sweet. I also like the piano because it is one of the instruments I can play.
Favourite song ...
I don't really have a favourite song at the moment but really am loving all the music from the TV series Nashville. It is a country music drama series based in Nashville and has some really great music.
My vision ...
My vision for the cultural life at Mt A this year is for all students to be involved and to believe in themselves, just as Glinda the Good Witch taught me . I wish, this year, for all students to get involved in the cultural life of our college. In doing so, all students will get to socialise, try new things and have a bit of fun. I want everyone to believe in themselves and work on unleashing their full potential. To believe is to succeed and to succeed we need to believe. In 2019 I would love everyone to participate in the arts and culture at Mt A.
If you don't know what Cultural Festival is, it is a festival celebrating our patron saint, St Francis of Assisi, and is held on the feast of the Stigmata. We celebrate our Franciscan heritage by dressing up, eating yummy food from food trucks, dancing, singing, and just having a lot of fun. There are heaps of fun and exciting activities, performances, and even competitions. It is just a great celebration day of all we are as a college.
What do you like most about Cultural Festival?
Honestly, I love everything about the Cultural Festival. Last year the theme was A Blast from the Past and my friends and I dressed up as The Wiggles. We walked down the costume runway and won first prize for best dressed! I also really love the Battle of the Houses when the houses compete for the best song and dance. The overall day is a whole lot of fun and is one of my most favourite events of the entire year.
Where’s your favourite place in the world you’ve been to?
I have traveled to a few places in my life so far: America, New Zealand, South Africa, Kuala Lumpur, Tasmania, Sydney, Adelaide, Far North Queensland, and Canberra. I have been to America twice - once with my family and once with the college choir. We went to LA and San Francisco and I loved both places.
Probably the favourite place that I have visited is New Zealand. I was born in New Zealand! Go, the Silver Ferns and the All Blacks!! The cold, the rain, and the snow. It is a really nice place to visit and there are so many places within New Zealand to visit.
Favourite thing to do in my spare time .
My favourite thing to do in my spare time is watching Netflix. Just kidding! I do love a good Netflix series but my most favourite thing to do is sing. I pretty much sing 24/7. I sing all day every day. I am in the college choir and also a choir outside of school. I take singing lessons and study music as a subject. I also just love jamming to a good song on the radio. Singing and music is my passion and is what I do with majority of my spare time but, if I’m not doing this, I'm on the couch watching Netflix.
Favourite quote by a female .
“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.” – Maya Angelou
This is what music and the arts do for me.
