CHLOE HORNE, captain of Airds High School, is shortly to start her HSC exams.
What do you want to do post-HSC? I wanted to go straight into the workforce and get a metal fabrication apprenticeship, but lately I've been thinking about doing uni online while working at my part-time job at a pharmacy.
The best thing about working with metal? Knowing you can manipulate it the way you want — the sense of accomplishment you get after you finish a project is amazing.
The hardest thing about it? The contest of strength and creativity.
Apart from lessons, what do you think Airds High has taught you? The school community is great. I have learnt more about being a leader, and more about who I am as a person.
You're leading an Airds High team into the 24 Hour Fight Against Cancer? Yes. The Fight has a personal meaning for me. It makes me want to help out as much as possible.
The best thing about coming from Campbelltown? The sense of freedom you can have. It's not a farming town where everyone knows everyone, but it's not the city either where you know no-one — its an in-between town, with places and things that don't belong to one particular category; it keeps things interesting.
The best advice anyone ever gave you? My late uncle Vince; he told me I was beautiful and to believe in myself. That made me change my hairstyle (to get out of my face) and I haven't stopped believing in myself since.
If a movie was made about your life, who would star? Jessica Alba. It would be like another Twilight series — but there would be another 10 movies!
