YJA 2016 Junior Honourable Mention: The Golden Voice with the Golden Heart

17 Aug 2016 | Ben Jansseen

It’s a cold Thursday night and I’m anxiously waiting for the phone to ring. My Dad had contacted 3AW to ask if I could interview Phillip Brady.  Unfortunately, he wasn’t available but his producer said that he might call back. A short time later the phone rang and greeting me was a friendly and calm voice. “Hi Ben, it’s Phillip Brady. How are you today buddy?”  “Hello Mr Brady,” I replied, “can I interview you for my article?” “Go ahead Ben, you can call me Phillip if you prefer.”


YJA 2016 Intermediate Honourable Mention: An Angel of Mercy

17 Aug 2016 | Chelsea Luders

It has been said many times that “Everything happens for a reason” but after watching my brother, Mitchell, die from cancer when he was only 13, it’s just about impossible to find any reason for that.

One of those special people that I have been lucky to meet is a children’s doctor who is always doing everything for her patients and has a supercool name. She is a wonderful person and inspires me in many ways. So, I’d like to tell you about Dr Sara Bluefeather.
