Jacinta has the right attitude

One cool thing I’ve done as part of school was go on an exchange in Japan. We went to school with a Japanese student and followed them around so that we could experience their lives.

The culture was so different; I had such an amazing time. It was hard though because I don’t speak any Japanese!

I’m not really sure what I want to do when I leave school, I’m still trying to decide; maybe like in media or a teacher or something.

I think everyone should be able to go to school. It gives you an education and gets you where you want to be.

Sometimes things like where kids come from, or the way they’re brought up or financial issues can stop them though.

I think having the right attitude can help kids to do well too. You know, staying positive and helping others in the community and stuff. Having respect for yourself and others is also important.

I like living on the coast, there’s always lots of activities on. We often go to the beach to swim and there are some really good snorkelling spots. Busselton is quite busy these days and is getting busier.

On the weekends I play hockey for a girls’ team called the Cavaliers. I like it. People think it’s a scary sport but I’m so used to it now.

I also like to hang out with my family and friends. I live with my two parents and two younger sisters.

We go on family outings sometimes, camping and fishing and telling stories together.

I love my family. They’re important to me.
