am very fortunate that my profession allows me to meet a plethora of inspirational locals each and every day and I am honoured to bring you their stories through Profile magazine. The Profile team is proud to bring you our “movers and shakers” issue this month, jam-packed with amazing stories of people from all walks of life who have made a difference in their field. Speaking of inspiring, our beautiful cover girl Annette Gilmore-Scott shares with Tonia Zemek her incredible story of how a cochlear implant changed her life forever. Born profoundly deaf, Annette has had a rollercoaster journey into the hearing world and has now become a key speaker on the benefits of the groundbreaking surgery, winning several awards in the process. Real estate mogul Grant Smith, who has climbed his way up the ladder to become one of the most successful real estate agents with Century 21 Australia wide, chats with Anna Rawlings to reveal more of the man behind the success. Young visionary Jarreau Terry shares his groundbreaking ideas on renewable energy with us, and Kate Clifford talks to Woombye sisters Maxine, Georgie and Jessica Thompson about their sweet success with The Bookery Cook. Wonder food quinoa is under the spotlight in our gorgeous Gourmet section and we share all the best camping spots on the Sunshine Coast in Travelfile. So sit back, grab a coffee or some bubbles, and enjoy this fabulous issue of Profile! Cheers, INGRID NELSON EDITOR / JOURNALIST
