Welcome to Mamamia’s Open Post. If you don’t know about this weekly Wednesday tradition, it’s one of the ways the Mamamia community connects with each other about the events occurring in their lives. Tell us anything that’s happening with you in the comments section below, and feel free to ask other MMers for advice, air your grievances or share any exciting news from the week so far.
This week our Open Post comes courtesy of one of the youngest work experience candidates we’ve ever had at Mamamia.
Sixteen-year-old Abby has travelled from Brisbane to join us for a week. Abby recently participated in YMCA’s Queensland Youth Parliament — where she was awarded Best Youth Parliamentarian of the Opposition 2014 — and is a regular volunteer with Zonta, an international club dedicated to advancing the status of women. She also recently presented at the Brisbane Writer’s Festival during a youth session.
