KIIS 101.1 gives 25 year old life upgrade

Hands up who could do with a life upgrade?

KIIS 101.1 partnered with the Chapel Street Precinct to do just that with the winner of a huge $100,000 Life Upgrade was 25 year old Emilie Downey.

The 25-year-old teacher, who fell in love with Chapel Street the moment she moved to Melbourne from Perth two years ago, will soon be shopping up a storm in her favourite shopping precinct and already knows where she will be spending her lucrative prize. 

Emilie was one of 1200 wildcard entrants photographed on Chapel Street by a member of the ‘Snap Chap Crew’ who were out every weekend throughout the six week campaign.

Two hundred and seventy one shortlisted entrants were handed $100 vouchers to spend on Chapel Street over the course the campaign.

“I have never won anything like this before, I am so excited!” Emilie said.

“I always knew I wanted to live on Chapel Street and on the first weekend I visited Melbourne, a lady overheard me talking in a café with my parents and offered me a room to rent in Windsor! I’ve been renting near Chapel Street ever since. 

“The first thing I want to do with my winnings is go and get the apple crumble porridge from Journey Man on Chapel St and a coffee with (my partner) James.” 

Emilie is set to shop, eat, drink, stay and play her way through Chapel Street for a year…and all paid for.

She plans to upgrade her life with the following purchases:

–          Staying at The Cullen hotel to live rent free for a year
–          Flights from Flight Centre to fly her family over to visit from WA, whenever she wants
