YANCO'S Lilli Ingram has endured much change in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Lilli is a current year 11 student at Melbourne Girls Grammar, a boarding school in Victoria's capital city.
Lilli has been a student there for many years after being awarded a scholarship to attend.
Everything had been going smoothly - she's made many great friends, is ticking all of the boxes when it comes to her studies and she loves living on campus - but the COVID-19 has certainly presented its challenges.
Lilli has been back in Yanco learning from home as a result of the city's strict lockdown measures.
It's been tough getting used to learning in a different way, but what has given her a boost in recent weeks is finding out she has been elected as school captain at Melbourne Girls Grammar for 2021.
It's quite a feat for the "girl from the country", but a testament to her leadership skills and the confidence her peers have in her.
"It's a bit different learning from home after being around so many people, but I've gotten used to it," Lilli said.
"I was pretty surprised to be named school captain.
"I did not think I would be successful, but I am really looking forward to it."
Lilli is well known among the community in both Yanco and Leeton, having attended primary school and part of secondary school before heading off to Melbourne.
Many would also remember her father, the late Ross Ingram, who was a local doctor and a former state winner of the Young Australian of the Year award.
Sadly, Mr Ingram passed away not long before Lilli was born.
"I think he would be pretty proud of me, at least I hope so anyway," Lilli laughed. Lilli's mother and her siblings are also no doubt proud of everything that she is achieving.
While she isn't 100 per cent certain what career path she will take in the years ahead, the world is certainly her oyster.
This year she is already completing one year 12 subject - psychology, while also studying legal studies, English, mathematics, global politics and visual communication and design.
