ROCKHAMPTON'S Breanna Gallagher now calls London home.

The former Cathedral College student bought a one-way ticket to Manchester a year ago and has never looked back.

Breanna, 21, said she had fallen in love with living overseas.

"I've seen a lot of beautiful things in the world," she told The Bulletin this week.

"I chose to travel and live overseas to experience how others live and learn what I can from those people."

Breanna spent her Australia Day in true Aussie spirit and said she definitely took Australian weather for granted.

"I miss a lot of things about Australia," she said.

"I spent my Australia Day in a bar in which the Inbetweeners movie was filmed.

"We had a meat pie eating contest and sung 'I come from the land down under' which was a very proud moment."

Breanna said although she was living the dream, she still suffered from homesickness now and again.

 

"I miss my family like crazy," she said.

"My parents came to visit me last year and it was the best feeling seeing them at the airport after a year without them.

"I also have a one-year-old niece who I am yet to meet, which I am looking forward to."

During her time in Rockhampton Breanna was a qualified beauty therapist but has swapped that career path for the fashion industry since she has been in London.

"I landed a job for a fashion company," she said.

"It's called 'Net a Porter' and I'm a personal assistant for the founder of the company."

Before settling in London, Breanna travelled all over the world to experience what it has to offer.

"I've travelled through Portugal, Ibiza, Siberia, Russia, Mongolia, China, Lithuania, Poland, France, Scotland and Italy," she said.

"I've had a scooter accident, was kicked by a Russian man, climbed the Great Wall of China, ate scorpions from the street and was mugged outside my house in Manchester."

Breanna said her favourite place so far was Ibiza where she spent a week for a friend's birthday and watched the sunrise and set on the same day on the Mediterranean Sea.

Breanna also revealed that she went on a date with Max George, the lead singer from the band The Wanted.

Breanna plans to apply for a dual citizenship so she can stay permanently and become part of England's population.
