This’ll always be home
THE past week involved a lot of talking, writing and typing as I did journalism work experience with Emily Smith.
Talking to the locals has given me perspective on how others feel about the town.
I found myself having a conversation with them about the town I’ve lived in for 10 years, but never knew much about.
It was really interesting for me to learn how much people care and how passionate they are about the community.
Their perspective has actually made me more inspired to travel and see the world, knowing I’ll always have my friendly hometown to come back to.
I would love to travel to Europe, especially to England, Ireland and Germany because my ancestors came from there.
I find it so important to see new places and understand a place’s culture and history.
But now I also feel like I understand Monto better.
I’ve always known Monto was slow-paced, which I used to see as a curse, but it can also be a blessing.
I am sure I can smile and say hello to people here and they will always say it back.
I know that I’ll move on to a bigger place and I have so much to experience and so much to learn, but I’ll always be able to call Monto my home.
