My role model is the current Australian of the Year - Ita Buttrose - because she has done more for this country, as not only a mother, a wife and an inspiration to women, but has also been involved in numerous charities. If I could achieve as much of what Miss Buttrose has achieved in my lifetime I would be extremely proud of myself.
