When I started the 'Face of the Extraordinary' project I had no idea who I would meet or what would happen. I thought well I'll just throw the balls in the air and see where they fall and hopefully, with a bit of luck, they won't crash land on my head.

I was on a mission to find the most incredible Australians.

Not the celebrity kind you see or hear about in the media but the one's you don't. The ones that restore your faith in humanity.

Every week I'm meeting the most remarkable people right here in my own Northern Beaches community who inspire me in so many ways. I'm even more inspired when I meet someone like Elinor - so young, but so full of life and purpose.
