A message from Annabelle! Hello everyone, I’m Annabelle! I have recently graduated from Victoria University with a Law and Criminology degree. When I’m not looking after my dog, I spend my time playing football, running, sewing, and making textile art pieces. I love anything outdoorsy as well! I’m super excited to be able to take on this role and get to know you all 😊
