Lives in Traralgon

I love the strength and compassion of our community. So for me, the strength inspires me. I see that every day where people gather together and they, you know, come up with local solutions to local issues. They advocate for their community, their neighbour, their family, and they come together to make great things happen in our Valley. They stand together to be counted, and that’s really something that inspires me and it keeps me coming down to work every day.

And the other word I used was compassion and I think for me, that’s how we show our compassion for people and our community. You know, every day I see people working together, they’re looking after their neighbours, they’re checking on their family. You know, if there’s someone in need they rally together to, you know, to ensure that they’re supported and that, you know, they’re not left behind. And I think that is something that is really rare, it’s a rare find to see. And I’m really proud that I’m part of this community.

I’ve lived in the region for most of my life, and I’m proud to have called most of the major centres “home” at one time or another.

Our region has a proud history of contributing to our state, whether it be the electricity we generate, the food we produce or…

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…

Lives in Churchill

I grew up in Pakistan and came to Australia 10 years ago in 2009.
Why would you live anywhere else? I guess this is where I would start because you’re so close to the snow and so close to the beach – you get the best of both worlds…
