Congrats to my Top 50 friends!

Yes, Queensland Tourism has cut down the list of 30,000 applicants to 50.  It’s a nice number to munch on.  I have some frustrations and disappointments with the list.  I know some fantastic  applications that beat the socks off a majority of the list, in fact whether it be from the media whiz do-everything adventurer to the charismatic novice.  However, I am very proud to say that not just one, but MANY of the Ning community members made the cut!!

Congratulations guys!!!  Hope to see you continue into the Top 10 and if not, still hope to continue seeing  ya (:

Linda – Love her cute photo edits and genuine heart, I empathize with her aspirational state and root for her not just because she’d do a fun blog but because this job could really sky rocket her career plans (whereas some of the other people in The List would just be adding another feather to a very crowded hat)  Find out more at her blog and Best Job blog and aspiring reporter blog.  You can see more videos on her youtube channel and follow her on twitter.  She’s on facebook too!

    Rescues Kim!
    I thought that Kim is a specialty, and care manner person. I saw has many people to the point of view is subject to duty this work, but I thought that she is not such person. Perhaps some people is good at performing, movie also very fancy. But is this work’s core not that environmental protection ‘ care ‘ continues forever to develop like three goals? Now the great barrier reef ecology moves toward feebly day after day , we need to have a person who has sincerity to treasure it the to manage it, but is not throws the ticket to the human who is good at performing , like this we and the later generation descendants can forever appreciate guarantee the reef beautiful scene, also can avoid letting it move toward the historical noun the regret, DO you want yours and your descendants can appreciate guarantees the reef greatly? That throws the ticket to Kim! In all participants, only then she can accomplish, please throw a your sacred ticket to her! Thanks!
