Faces of Yarra

Leidy Ballesteros, Richmond

“I came to Melbourne to study English, at the moment I am doing a Diploma of Business. I live in Richmond, close to Jolimont station. It is the perfect area with all its parks, cafes, restaurants and really good pubs. Working in hospitality for 2 years, here, gave me the chance to learn about the diversity of food in Australia; Richmond is a perfect example of it. I feel like Melbourne is my second home.”
