Little Angel - - TEAM ANGEL -

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!
