What have you done since you finished school?
I finished school in 2018.
Since then, I went through Jigsaw (a disability services and support organisation) at French’s Forest for my orientation. They are such beautiful, incredible staff. My trainer, Louise, she’s amazing. It’s just awesome.
In high school I sometimes got bullied, so from Jigsaw I learned about constructive feedback.
What are some of your goals?
My purpose for my goals in my future, I want to work at a model agency or as a make-up artist. My best friend’s sister has a business as a make-up artist. I got inspired by her. She does make-up for broadway shows and fashion shows.
I actually did an interview of my friend’s sister because when I met her and found out she did make-up I was quickly inspired by her.
My friends have been very supportive.
Now I have a book on make-up and have all the products, I have the lipsticks, I have the eyeshadows, I have the bronzers, I have the blush.
How does it feel to achieve your goals?
It feels so good. If I achieve something, I’m over the moon. And if I’m a bit down I put a strong face on and put on some make-up. It makes me feel better.
I love fashion and modelling and make-up. It ties in altogether.
What has this past year been like?
This past year was a bit hard and so I’m trying to keep it all together by making a difference.
Now I also have a job with Down Syndrome Australia. So, with Down Syndrome Australia I’ll be a Health Ambassador. It gives me a sense to make a difference. I want to make a difference in people.
