THIS week's Girl Friday is Sarah Mann, 17, who recently graduated from school and is in the throes of working out her future.

Just one month shy of her 18th birthday, she's decided to take this year off to work and sort out her goals.

She's contemplating joining the police force next year, and for a real adventure might do her studies in the Northern Territory.

"I've always had an interest in that thing, just thought it would be something different," Sarah said.

"I'm more hands-on. I just want to see different experiences in life, help people in rough times and meet all those different people."

She's still keen on fashion, working for a local shoe store and taking off on shopping trips.

She was featured on the cover of The Observer's Proms 2012 lift-out in a gothic-glam look, but Sarah said bright colours were what usually worked for her.

"Anything different, anything that people don't wear every day," she said.
