Stars of Wollongong 2024

I'm fundraising for...

All my grandparents passed from cancer, so it is very close to my heart. If I can help raise money and awareness, I will be so happy.


 I also love to dance, so I am looking forward to this challenge. I work at two places Blackbird Café in Thirroul, (I help to make coffees, serve customers, cleaning and using the register. I love meeting all our customers and seeing our regulars who always say hello and talk to me about my day. People are so nice to me, and my team is amazing).


I also work at Thirroul + Co., (which has lots of beautiful things like clothes, jewellery, candles, crystals and so much more. I get to serve customers, gift wrap, use the register and help customers chose the perfect gift. I love working there because my team is so lovely, and we have lots of fun too.


Three interesting facts about me, I hate fruit and vegetables and anything green, I have a phobia of bananas. I love to pose and model for the camera in different dresses for my Instagram account @ItsDownToSimone, I love TV shows and my favourite is Home and Away. I got to go to the set of the show and meet all the stars. It was the best day ever.
