Hi my name is Tahlijia and I grew up in the rural town of Temora, New South Wales. I now currently live in Wagga Wagga, New South Wales. I have successfully completed courses in Certificate III in Business and Certificate II in Animal Studies. I currently work as a Barista in a drive-through coffee shop.
How many years have you worked at CCB?: This will be my first time. Very excited!!
What is your must bring item to CCB?: A pen so that I can write down any ideas and memories I have. You never know when inspiration may strike.
What is your favorite hobby/sport/thing to do during your free time?: I love being outdoors, riding horses and playing with my dogs. Also just going on walks and spending time with family and friends.
What are you famous for?: I'm probably famous for my love of bad dad jokes and puns.
What are you most proud of/biggest achievement in life so far?: I think I am most proud of winning my first ever cutting event that I competed in. Also being the first one to go backwards and then upside down when doing the Canyon Swing in Queenstown, New Zealand. Absolutely terrifying to jump 110m but definitely something I am most proud of.
What are you most looking forward to about CCB?: I'm looking forward to meeting some amazing people, helping the boys try something new, experiencing some American culture and in return sharing some Australian culture. Also just creating some great memories and friendships.
What impact are you most excited to make this year at CCB?: To teach the boys that it's ok to laugh at yourself and to also to be persistent if they don't get the hang of something straight away.
What is your favorite quote?: I have two. 1) 'Blowing out someone else's candle won't make yours shine any brighter' 2) 'Be brave. Even if you're not, pretend to be. No-one can tell the difference'
