Best moment of your life

I was junior bridesmaid at my cousin’s wedding.

One word that describes you the best

Happy go-lucky.

Persons you most admire and why

My mum, my aunty and my friend Jana because they’re all loving to me and care for me.

Best thing about being Greek-Australian

Being proud of my ancestral heritage.

If I could say anything to the Greek community…

I would say to be proud of who you are, where you come from and stand up for your beliefs.

Funniest Greek family moment

The funniest Greek moment was at Christmas. We were at my grandparents house when my aunty slipped and broke a chair.

Favourite place to go or hang out at

I would have to say the shopping centre and the beach.

Song that I can’t get out of my head at the moment

Don’t trust me-3OH!3.

I can’t live without…

My family and friends.

If I was Kevin Rudd for a day I would…

Ban TV commercials because they interrupt our favourite shows while we are watching them.
