Voices of Future Generations: Penpal in the Outback

“Where you live, I think, it actually changes your opinion on quite a lot of things.”

Words of wisdom from a child living in the Blue Mountains of Australia.

This episode of Voices is about a fourteen year old girl in Sydney and her penpal – only 70 km away, but in a different world. She talks about what it’s like for her, an urban teen, to learn about life from someone her own age but living a wildly different life. But not so different in some ways as well.

“I suppose that where you live is what you make of it. It’s all about the people and the things that you love,” she concludes.
