I was born in Argentina and came to Australia when I was 11 years old with my family. We lived with my aunt and uncle for about 1 year until my parents were able to find jobs. We didn’t speak any English which made it hard to go to school. Eventually we moved to Noble Park when my parents bought a house there. I went back to Argentina about 2 years ago with my sister for about 1 month, and I absolutely loved it. If I had enough money I would love go back and live there. My mum recently sold our house and we now live in Skye. I have two pet dogs, both are pugs one is a female and the other is a male. I worked in the hospitality industry for about 7 years in the gaming section. After that I did a Tourism course and got a job at Qantas frequent flyers and now I’m here.
