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.

The Latrobe Valley is so full of potential to create opportunities! We live in an area of prosperous soil, education precincts, gorgeous nature reserves, well-populated towns all with the benefit of being an hour from the beach and mountains and an hour and a half from the city with a…

I like living in the Latrobe Valley because it allows me to give back to my community and to feel included as part of a community. So presenting myself in the Latrobe Valley has allowed me to give back to my community by participating in active and social events.
