Mrs PRENTICE (Ryan) (13:45): I recently received a letter from a young constituent in Ryan regarding her trip to Africa. Her name is Monica Dakin and she plans to travel to South Africa to volunteer with a wildlife conservation and re-education group. Even at the young age of 18, Monica Dakin is already setting an outstanding example for the wider community. Monica plans to use this trip to assist with the conservation of Africa's animals and hopes to re-educate the locals and the Ryan community about the conservation of all animals. As a student of ecology and zoology and a member of the local scouting movement, Monica will have the ideal base from which to share what she learns on her trip. Monica has also already shown great dedication and initiative by putting together many fundraisers to assist in raising the amount of money she needs to finance this trip. She has held sausage sizzles and sold raffle tickets and goes door to door to sell chocolates. Monica is truly an outstanding example not only of her generation but also of the hardworking constituents in the electorate of Ryan which I am so proud to represent.
