ELODIE Vanoudendycke is a shining beacon on what Wagga’s younger residents can achieve.

Ms Vanoudendycke only spent three short years in Wagga, but she will leave a lasting legacy on the city when she initiated the Lights4Lake plan as part of Committee4Wagga’s (C4W) emerging leaders program.

The 28-year-old said she used to run a lot in Wagga. “You don’t feel very safe,” she said. “When I joined the emerging leaders program I felt lighting up the lake would be a good project.” She landed her dream job – a hostess for Emirates – in 2013, but was determined to see the project she started come to fruition.

C4W chief Chris Fitzpatrick said the program allowed younger members of our community to put forward ideas.
