1. Tell us your name and give us a list of 5 things most people don’t know about you.
My name is Olympia Nahtalia Hitner and here are 5 things most people don’t know about me:
My biggest fear is dying
My favourite colour is blue
I was a dancer for seven years
I hate red sauce like in pasta, but I love tomatoes
I drove all the way from Melbourne to Sydney alone to meet my boyfriend for the first time
2. If there were no rules for one day and you could do anything outrageous, what would you do and why?
I would somehow borrow multiple cats and dogs for the day and just cuddle and play with them all day long!
3. Which have it easier in life? Men or women?
I believe gender doesn’t define who has it easier. We are all faced with very similar issues regardless if you’re a man or a woman. What can happen to a female can happen to a male and vice-versa.
4. What are the 3 most important traits you think a titleholder should possess?
Confidence, determination and inner strength.
5. What don’t we need to know about you?
I can be really sensitive, I cry even when I’m super happy, or when I get too attached to a TV show – if something dramatic happens I’ll start crying.
6. what do you think is the best way for governments to combat the rising threat of terrorism?
Not send threats back to whoever is sending the threats. Try to create an understanding; however still preparing in case something does happen. I just think the best way to prevent any altercation from happening is by not acting on the problem in a negative way and not being a threat back; try to level the situation.
7. If your younger brother or sister came to you and asked you to buy them condoms, would you? Why or why not?
Of course I would! Sex is something many people do nowadays, especially at a young age; its becoming a social norm. I would also have a chat with my sister or brother to ensure they aren’t making any wrong choices and are doing it in a safe environment. They do teach sex-education in school, but I personally feel like they should start teaching it at a younger age. From what I remember, we didn’t learn much and we didn’t start learning about sex-education till I was about 15-16 years old. Back to my first point, being people are having sex at a young age, I think it is extremely important for sex-education to be taught at a younger age, around 12-13 years old. I also think they should add more to what they teach, they teach us about how to have safe sex, and STD’s but they don’t teach us about the emotional effects of having sex with the wrong people or in the wrong environments.
8. If you had to send one contestant home, which state would you remove?
I honestly wouldn’t know, I wouldn’t want to send anyone home!
9. What would you do if you found out you significant other had a homosexual relationship in the past?
It wouldn’t bother me at all. I am very big into rights for the LGBT community.
10. What is the most significant change you’ve seen in the world in the last 10 years?
Real Life Communication; I’ve noticed a lot of people are glued to their mobile phones; just the other night I was waiting for the train waiting to go to work and there was this lady with her male friend and she was just staring at her phone while telling him a story. I could tell that he was so disinterested because she wasn’t showing him any eye contact at all. I could be wrong, but that’s how I saw it. It was like she could’ve kept talking, and he could’ve walked away and come back numerous of times and she would’ve never noticed. Technology is a great thing, but it does play a huge role in the lack of real life communication.
