Red Bull Illume finalist – Top 50!

And I was the only female in the finals. With this news I had 5 days to find a flight and get myself to Ireland and Dublin for the large awards night and party, I had a lot of organising to do. With the kind help of United Travel Wanaka and Emirates, I was able to get there.
