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 in a way. It’s peaceful and the people are great. That’s what I love about the Latrobe Valley.
For some people it would be a great place because the people are really great, the people are supportive, you know your neighbours and everyone is always here to help you out in times of need.
I was part of the first ever Victorian Youth Conference in 2018 and it came about because of where I was because people are so amazing that they gave me the opportunity to be able to do stuff like the youth conference. I’m quite passionate about the local youth because young people are our future and because they bring so much to the table and it’s amazing to have their voices heard, and that’s why I’m a youth worker.

Lives in Yinnar

I love the Latrobe Valley because of the peace and beauty. There is a little bit of everything. I especially love our little town of Yinnar and all it has to offer including great food, coffee and unique shopping. We have amazing art and natural surroundings. I have found this…

Cub life: Lions go virtual to keep community engaged
Lives in Moe

On a typical Thursday night between April and September, you would struggle to find a seat at Moe Football Netball Club’s social rooms at Ted Summerton Reserve.

As with many grassroots sports clubs, Thursdays traditionally include the main training session, followed by team selection, meals and often entertainment.

Say Hola to Erika!
Lives in Newborough

Hola.

Erika – Spanish

 

When Erika was 15 years old, her family moved from Peru to Chile.

The language was the same – Spanish – but the locals spoke quickly and with a different accent, making them at times difficult to understand.

It took some getting used to but…
