Meet Izzy, one of the new casual Lighthouse Administrative Assistants!

Born and raised on a cattle farm near Mt Barker, Western Australia, Izzy made the brave decision to join the PLC Boarding House as a Year 10 student in 2017.

Who inspires you?

When I was younger I watched Bethany Hamilton win the US Surf ’n’ Sea Pipeline Women’s Pro…She has been an inspiration of mine ever since! As a rising surf star, Bethany lost her left arm to a 14-foot tiger shark. One month after the attack, Bethany returned to surfing and within two years had won her first national surfing title. I am inspired by her determination and motivation to reach top-level surfing, even after such a traumatic experience.

What are you most excited for in your role at the PLC Lighthouse?

The PLC Lighthouse is such a positive space to work in and has a real community spirit. I am really enjoying developing skills in different areas and getting a ‘behind the scenes’ look into the Lighthouse. I am so fortunate to have the opportunity to gain some experience in an industry where I may like to continue studies in the future. I have also been taken out of my comfort zone and exposed to things I haven’t done before, which will be hugely beneficial when I leave school at the end of this year.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I don’t have a lot of spare time at the moment because of commitments to rowing, study and working at the Lighthouse. However, when I do have spare time, I like to be around my friends and family, as well as swimming at the beach.
