In­ter­na­tional Women’s Day

Who is a woman you ad­mire and why?

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

De­bra Howe, Mackay:

The woman I most ad­mire is Jude Mon­roe, who was the CEO of Bris­bane City Coun­cil for 10 years. I think for a woman to help run the largest lo­cal govern­ment in Queens­land is a real feat.

Roz Jen­nings, Air­lie Beach:

De­bra Howe. Af­ter hear­ing her speak to­day, I am so full of ad­mi­ra­tion for her love of life.

Gayle Moody, Proser­pine:

One woman I re­ally ad­mire is one of my friends, Louise Fox­ley. She is a mid­wife at the Proser­pine Hos­pi­tal and she is ab­so­lutely amaz­ing.

Michelle Lynes, Air­lie Beach:

I ad­mire my grand­mother, she passed away re­cently and on her fu­neral no­tice it said ‘I have lead a full and ac­tive life’ and I found that to be very in­spir­ing.

Car­rie Bern­de­ich, Can­non­vale:

I ad­mire Bu­jalung woman Naomi Mo­ran from the Koori Mail, an in­dige­nous news­pa­per.

Ali­son Holmes, Cannon Val­ley:

I ad­mire the Queen of Eng­land. She's been through some tough times and has al­ways re­tained her deco­rum.

Pam Har­ri­son, Can­non­vale:

I ad­mire my daugh­ter. Af­ter hav­ing two chil­dren and trav­el­ling the world, she's fin­ished her de­gree and started her Masters. She's my hero.
