My name is Afraaz and I am ten years old. I like animals and when I found out that the iconic Tasmanian devils were dying out, I wanted to make a change. My school has a Gifted and Talented (GAT) program where students can challenge themselves to do anything they want. I knew that this was the opportunity for me to have a chance to help the devils so I took it and built a website.
I am what my peers refers to as ‘the smart one who always knows everything’. I don’t hate that title, it makes me feel a little bit happy, but then I realise how much there is to learn and it makes me ponder upon how much I can improve. I am pretty humble and I also do well in almost all my subjects. My favourite colour is neon green and I like maths, physics, chemistry and biology, the 4 main elements of science. I can also solve a Rubik’s cube in under a minute.
Thanks to my school Principal, Mrs Issa for allowing me to have this experience.
Thanks to my GAT mentor, Mr D’Alessio, for helping me and encouraging me to build this website.
Thanks to Brodie Chiswick, the Fundraising and Administration manager from Aussie Ark, for helping me achieve my goals.
Thanks to Mikayla from the Australian Reptile Park for helping me while I was visiting The Australian Reptile Park and having an interview with me.
Thanks to my grandmother, Fauzia Siddiqui, for helping me financially with hosting the website.
Thanks to my dad, Zaakiy Siddiqui for assisting me with his technological expertise.
