Shakira Moulton is a Year 11 student at Bunbury Senior High School, where she is undertaking an ATAR pathway. Named Year 10 Dux of the school in 2013, Shakira regards Society and Environment as one of her stronger subjects having received a High Distinction in the National Geography Competition the same year. Outside of school, Shakira enjoys dance classes up to three times per week. On completing her high school studies, she would like to pursue a career involving either French or dance.
The Premier’s ANZAC Student Tour will be Shakira’s first trip overseas and she is very excited and honoured to be representing her family, school, community and State as a Youth Ambassador to Malaysia. She believes this experience will further extend her knowledge and understanding of Australia’s involvement in South-East Asian conflicts, and hopes to share what she has learned with her peers on return. Shakira’s grandfather, Private Edmund John Moulton, served as a military policeman during the Indonesian Confrontation, and her father was born in Malaysia. It is for these reasons that her participation on this tour has added meaning for the family.
