a Mikaela is only 10, but she’s already is superstar! She raises money for charities, love to be involved with Nippers and would up. a chef or an athlete when she grows
Hi Mikaela! You did some amazing fundraising recently – can you tell us a bit about that?
I raised money for the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) by having a stall at my local shops. I sold handmade Christmas decorations, popcorn, chocolate and RFDS stickers. Afterwards my family and friends donated money. My total fundraising for the RFDS finished up at $318. What other charities have you helped? I have helped my local surf club and have donated pocket money to the Australian Indigenous Education Foundation.
You’re also interested in being a chef. What do you like to make? I like to make desserts, cakes and slices. Who do you look up to?
Adriano Zumbo, because he thinks and cooks outside the box. Matt Bevilacqua, because he is an ironman legend and rides the big waves. Kelly Slater, because Kelly keeps trying when things get hard.
What made you decide to help them?
The RFDS provides medical services to anyone who lives, works or travels in rural or remote Australia. I read a book about the RFDS at school and decided it was a good cause. We hear that you might want to be a professional athlete when you grow up. What sports do you play? In the summer I do Nippers and in winter I play soccer. All year round I swim. Nippers is my favourite.
Lucky Mikaela got to tour the RFDS Brisbane base as a thank you for her fundraising efforts!
