Thank you for reading this!!
Fiona is significant
In conclusion I think that Fiona Wood is a significant Australian because she has made healing burns much easier. You probably don't know just how many people experience a bad burn. You also probably don't know how terrible burns can be for a person. Thanks to Fiona we can imagine a world where burns can be cured in short time and this is directly changing peoples lives dramatically.
