Phoebe

Lives in Morwell

Hi, I’m Phoebe from Morwell. I’ve lived in the Latrobe Valley all my life. I’ve studied here, I’ve done my primary, secondary and tertiary studies, and I’m now very lucky to work here as well. I’m a nurse – I specialise in the liver so I help people with viral hepatitis, people with alcohol-related disease and also people with fatty liver.

I’m first generation Australian. My parents were both born in the Philippines and then migrated here in 1989. I love Latrobe because I’ve travelled a lot, done some work in Nepal, in Alice Springs as well and same thing goes every time I come home it’s always that feeling of ‘oh, thank God I’m home’ because this is where my family and my friends are and work is. So I’m very proud to, to say I was born in Latrobe Valley. I’m very lucky to now work in the community. I’m doing what I love and being able to contribute back into the community that has actually brought me up.

Lixia – Mandarin

 

Of all the culture shocks of moving to a new country, it was a quick trip to the shops that offered Lixia the clearest reminder she wasn’t in China anymore.

Lives in Traralgon

I love the Latrobe Valley because it feels like one big family that when in need, bands together to support and protect one another. So often I see local businesses banding together to assist one another, in order achieve a positive outcome. Especially when it comes to fundraising for a…
