From:​​ ​I​ ​am​ ​originally​ ​from​ ​Muswellbrook​ ​but​ ​moved​ ​to​ ​Tamworth​ ​from​ ​Cairns​ ​in 2016. 

 Who​ ​is​ ​your​ ​sponsor?​​ ​My​ ​sponsor​ ​is​ ​The​ ​Northern​ ​Daily​ ​Leader​ ​-​ ​who​ ​I​ ​also​ ​work for 

 Why​ ​did​ ​you​ ​enter​ ​the​ ​quest?​ ​​​ ​I​ ​entered​ ​to​ ​quest​ ​because​ ​I​ ​wanted​ ​to​ ​meet​ ​some new​ ​people,​ ​make​ ​some​ ​new​ ​friends​ ​and​ ​also​ ​to​ ​give​ ​back​ ​to​ ​the​ ​community.

What​ ​is​ ​the​ ​most​ ​interesting​ ​thing​ ​about​ ​you?​​ ​When​ ​I​ ​lived​ ​in​ ​Cairns​ ​I​ ​lived​ ​in​ ​a tree​ ​house.​ ​I​ ​had​ ​to​ ​access​ ​the​ ​house​ ​by​ ​a​ ​bridge.​ ​It​ ​was​ ​amazing,​ ​surrounded​ ​by nature​ ​and​ ​wildlife. 

 Where​ ​would​ ​you​ ​send​ ​someone​ ​to​ ​visit​ ​if​ ​they​ ​were​ ​in​ ​Tamworth​ ​for​ ​the​ ​first time?  

​If​ ​the​ ​visitor​ ​wanted​ ​to​ ​do​ ​something​ ​within​ ​Tamworth​ ​I​ ​would​ ​send​ ​them​ ​to​ ​the Golden​ ​Guitar​ ​-​ ​not​ ​only​ ​has​ ​this​ ​got​ ​an​ ​amazing​ ​history​ ​and​ ​story​ ​behind​ ​it​ ​but​ ​the visitor​ ​information​ ​centre​ ​that​ ​it​ ​backs​ ​onto​ ​is​ ​great.​ ​It​ ​has​ ​so​ ​much​ ​information​ ​on the​ ​town,​ ​a​ ​café,​ ​a​ ​wax​ ​museum,​ ​a​ ​gift​ ​shop​ ​etc. 

 ​If​ ​the​ ​visitor​ ​wanted​ ​to​ ​do​ ​something​ ​out​ ​of​ ​town​ ​I​ ​would​ ​suggest​ ​taking​ ​a​ ​trip​ ​to​ ​the little​ ​town​ ​of​ ​Uralla,​ ​roughly​ ​1​ ​hours’​ ​drive​ ​from​ ​Tamworth.​ ​It​ ​is​ ​a​ ​very​ ​historical​ ​town filled​ ​with​ ​amazing​ ​pubs,​ ​cafes,​ ​wineries​ ​and ​heritage​ ​walks.​ ​The​ ​residents​ ​of​ ​the​ ​town are​ ​super​ ​friendly,​ ​welcoming​ ​and​ ​accommodating.

 What’s​ ​your​ ​favourite​ ​thing​ ​about​ ​the​ ​Country​ ​Music​ ​Festival? I​ ​love​ ​the​ ​atmosphere​ ​that​ ​surrounds​ ​the​ ​town​ ​during​ ​the​ ​Festival​ ​period.​ ​Walking down​ ​Peel​ ​Street,​ ​you​ ​can’t​ ​help​ ​but​ ​smile​ ​because​ ​everyone​ ​is​ ​so​ ​happy. 

 Who​ ​or​ ​what​ ​is​ ​your​ ​favourite​ ​band​ ​and/or​ ​song? When​ ​I​ ​think​ ​about​ ​my​ ​favourite​ ​song​ ​or​ ​artist,​ ​it​ ​is​ ​so​ ​hard​ ​to​ ​narrow​ ​it​ ​down because​ ​I​ ​like​ ​so​ ​many​ ​artists​ ​such​ ​as:​ ​Keith​ ​Urban,​ ​Casey​ ​Chambers​ ​and​ ​The McClymonts. 

 What​ ​has​ ​been​ ​the​ ​best​ ​thing​ ​about​ ​the​ ​Queen​ ​Quest​ ​so​ ​far? My​ ​favourite​ ​part​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Queen​ ​Quest​ ​so​ ​far​ ​is​ ​that​ ​I​ ​have​ ​meet​ ​some​ ​amazing​ ​ladies and​ ​made​ ​new​ ​friends. 

 What​ ​would​ ​you​ ​do​ ​if​ ​you​ ​were​ ​crowned​ ​queen?

If​ ​I​ ​was​ ​crowned​ ​Queen​ ​I​ ​would​ ​represent​ ​and​ ​promote​ ​what​ ​Tamworth,​ ​the community​ ​and​ ​The​ ​Country​ ​Music​ ​Festival​ ​stand​ ​for,​ ​with​ ​the​ ​use​ ​of​ ​my​ ​skills​ ​and knowledge​ ​through​ ​networking​ ​and​ ​social​ ​media.​ ​

While​ ​working​ ​for​ ​the​ ​local Newspaper,​ ​I​ ​have​ ​had​ ​the​ ​opportunity​ ​to​ ​become​ ​the​ ​face​ ​of​ ​The​ ​Northern​ ​Daily Leader​ ​or​ ​“Director​ ​of​ ​First​ ​Impressions”;​ ​by​ ​gaining​ ​this​ ​role​ ​I​ ​have​ ​had​ ​the​ ​pleasure of​ ​meeting​ ​and​ ​helping​ ​many​ ​Tamworth​ ​residents​ ​and​ ​the​ ​community​ ​with​ ​their enquiries.​ ​

To​ ​be​ ​able​ ​to​ ​give​ ​back​ ​to​ ​the​ ​community​ ​by​ ​being​ ​an​ ​ambassador​ ​of Tanworth​ ​would​ ​be​ ​an​ ​amazing​ ​experience. 

 What​ ​Queen​ ​responsibility​ ​or​ ​perk​ ​are​ ​you​ ​most​ ​looking​ ​forward​ ​to? I​ ​look​ ​forward​ ​to​ ​being​ ​able​ ​to​ ​represent​ ​the​ ​town​ ​of​ ​Tamworth​ ​and​ ​my​ ​sponsor/work at​ ​all​ ​of​ ​the​ ​events​ ​during​ ​the​ ​Country​ ​Music​ ​Festival.​ ​Being​ ​able​ ​to​ ​interact​ ​with​ ​the community​ ​on​ ​a​ ​daily​ ​basis,​ ​getting​ ​to​ ​know​ ​people​ ​in​ ​the​ ​town​ ​and​ ​help​ ​out wherever​ ​I​ ​am​ ​needed.
