Hey guys, I'm Amie as you've probably read. Im sixteen years old and I care for my younger sister who is ten. Since my sister was born she hasn't lived a day without pain. She was born with a rare genetic disorder, which causes un-normality features, and has traits that has caused other things to make her even sicker

IMPORTANT: Attention young carers who applied for the 2014 Rothschild Australia Young Endeavour Scholarship! We have just been informed by Young Endeavour Youth Scheme that due to maintenance on the tall ship, the dates and voyage route have been changed. The lucky young carer who receives the Rothschild Australia Young Endeavour Scholarship will now be departing Sydney on 5 December 2014 and return to Sydney on 15 December 2014. Applications have only just closed so we will be in touch!
