I have lived in 6 countries during the last 14 years and I love to read, write & sing

Maddi here, I'm a TCK (third culture kid), which may sound cool but means I have lived most of my life outside of my home country of Australia, where I was born. I miss my family, especially my cousins but I am fortunate to have attended schools in Singapore, Malaysia, India, Bahrain and now I go to English College in Dubai. With technology such as Skype, WhatsApp, SnapChat and Instagram I stay in touch with the friends I have all over the world, especially my BFF, Mel in Cyprus.

So you've gathered that I like books - I LOVE books and love to talk about them. Go to I Read where you can watch some of my video reviews.

I have a passion for acting, especially improv and I go to Youth Theatre. I also love to sing and play the guitar, keyboards and drums and have been playing with Rock Camp for Girls UAE (RCFG) over the last four years and really love the live gigs we perform.

Musical Theatre is another passion and I loved playing an orphan in the stage musical Annie for a two-week season here at Madinat Theatre in Dubai. I go to Pirates Surf Life Saving every week and over five years have been taking part in junior Triathlons and Aquathons.

Animals are the best and my other BFF (Best Fury Friend) is my Shitzu Luke and I adore horses and ride at Mushrif Equestrian Centre whenever I can find the time, mostly when it's a bit cooler here in Dubai.

The moon is a loyal companion. It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast. knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human. Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.
