1. What do you en­joy most about Greater Shep­par­ton?

For me, it is the peo­ple. It is a great honour to live in and be part of Greater Shep­par­ton . . . the peo­ple are wel­com­ing, sup­port­ive and gen­er­ous.

2. What is your favourite thing to do in Greater Shep­par­ton?

I en­joy serv­ing the com­mu­nity, my friends . . . many peo­ple need a lit­tle sup­port, some­one to lis­ten to them, re­spect them.

I get all my plea­sure from be­ing with my fam­ily and serv­ing ev­ery­one in our com­mu­nity.

3. Why is Greater Shep­par­ton a great place for young peo­ple to grow up?

We are so lucky to live here — op­por­tu­ni­ties are ev­ery­where.

We are rich in agri­cul­tural pro­duce and fresh food with clear air, giv­ing us healthy lives. We moved to Shep­par­ton 28 years ago for a bet­ter life, but we came with­out a job.

I cleaned win­dows and washed toi­lets, any job was a good job.

Be­cause we worked hard, new op­por­tu­ni­ties came.

The peo­ple here have al­ways sup­ported us and now we en­joy giv­ing back to our com­mu­nity.

Lucky to be here: Azem Elmaz from Lut­fiyes Shish Ke­babs & Peo­ple Help­ing Peo­ple is #Shep­PROUD.
