THIS week we have a coffee with Welcoming Intercultural Neighbours director Natalia Muszkat.

Name: Natalia Muszkat/

Occupation: Director, Welcoming Intercultural Neighbours.

Years lived in the Gladstone region: Seven years in Clinton, Gladstone.

On a sunny Saturday afternoon you can find me working on photography and wondering what I will be doing later that night.

I'm usually drinking "mate" (Argentinean tea) at my friend's place while we talk about life.

My guiltiest pleasure: Okay, I do watch Home and Away.

When I was young, my dream was to be the president of my country (Argentina).

I can't remember the last time I felt bored.

My local shopping centre is the whole of Gladstone.

My date to the Academy Awards would be… I would sell the tickets and fly to a Q&A show to join the students protesting on TV.

Pink Floyd's Another Brick in the Wall and Rage Against the Machine's Killing in the Name would be included on the soundtrack to my life.

I would consider Richard Dawkins to be my hero.

After a few acting lessons, including accent coaching, I would play me in the movie about my life.

My first order of business as newly-elected PM would be to ban the use of animals for entertainment including rodeos and horse racing.

One of the region's best features is the willingness of organisations and individuals to collaborate and act together to get what we want.

What are you currently passionate about? May is domestic and family violence prevention month.

I am passionate about the work our community is doing this month (and always) to promote the message of no tolerance to domestic and family violence in our town.

Projects you are working on? A few: at Welcoming Intercultural Neighbours we are working on cultural diversity awareness projects for our youth, and new health services access improvement programs for our cultural and linguistically diverse community.

Topics:  coffee with, welcoming intercultural neighbours
