You Glo Girl
After witnessing her Mum fumbling around in her handbag for keys one night, Bodelle had a brilliant idea! What if she was to make a light strip that came on when you opened the clasp of the bag? Mum's reply... "U Glo Girl" and the spark of an idea was born.
I really enjoyed sourcing all the components at various shops and assembling them together to make a working prototype, and then the finished article. Trying to prize Mum's nice red handbag out of her hands for my project was definitely the most challenging part!
I love to play sport, especially waterpolo, cricket, volleyball and swimming. I also like camping at Matai Bay at Christmas and shopping with my friends.
My dream job is to be a hair and makeup artist for the big stars on major movie sets but at this stage I'm keeping my options open.
