Mel Carrero moved to Lismore in 2006 and hasn't been able to let go of it ever since. Through the university culture experienced while studying at SCU she loved the culture of the town, but it wasn't until university finished she truly scratched beneath the surface when working at The Northern Rivers Echo. There she learned that if there is something you're looking for in a community whether it be support groups or niche clubs, this is the place to be. Mel is now the marketing manager for Lismore Shopping Square and in her spare time shoots, styles and writes for her blog The Chubby Fashionista, working with lots of local models over the past few years and having an exhibition of the shots in 2012. As writing, community and imagery are her main passions, Common Ground contributing is a way to get her fix!
