What Lilly Baker has done in the last two years is unbelievable.
The 18-year-old Orange Viper hasn't even seen out her second winter playing contact rugby league and is already gearing up to represent the New South Wales Blues in the looming under 19s State of Origin series.
The call-up comes after a Western Rams gig, a Country berth, and a spot on the Glebe Dirty Reds side every weekend.
Translation? Baker is making waves.
And while she's honoured to play in the teams she has so far, something hits different about a NSW Blues selection.
"I think I nearly passed out when I got the call," Baker said.
"I cried with excitement, I still pinch myself. It's just unreal. I haven't even been playing for two years and I'm already playing Origin ... it's pretty crazy.
"I've achieved almost all my dreams by the time I'm 18."
Baker first burst onto the scene last summer when she ran riot for the Vipers' under 18s side in the Western Women's Rugby League competition.
From then, she drew the attention of representative selectors and began to make her way up the playing ranks.
To the untrained eye, the 18-year-old might not look like an out-and-out big hitter, but Baker packs a punch for her size.
"When I first started playing, I didn't know how to tackle or make contact, I just wanted to get the ball in my hands and run," she said.
"But, I learned the logic behind tackling and how to do it properly off Jess Skinner at Western Rams, and that made it a lot easier.
"It's also a lot easier to tackle when you play with so many amazing girls who are so good at it."
She's had the luxury of playing alongside some talented women so far, but can't wait to spend time around two particular talents at the upcoming Blues camp.
"I'm excited to play with girls like Kezie Apps and Jess Sergis," she said.
"I've got my first session on Friday night at Homebush and I'm very nervous."
She's obviously got the potential to be one of the best rugby league stars in the country, but Baker admits there's still a lot of improvement to go, starting with her mindset on game day.
"I think my mental fitness still needs improving," she said.
"I'm always stopping myself and telling myself I'm tired when really I should keep going. I also want to get in there and run the ball more as well.
"I know I can do it but sometimes my mind thinks otherwise."
A country girl might be daunted by frequent trips to the city, but Baker described Sydney as "her second home" and insisted her family is always making the trip down with her.
"Everybody always comes out with me because they don't want something to happen without them being there," she said.
Baker will officially make her under 19s NSW Blues debut against Queensland on Friday June 25 at Sunshine Coast Stadium.
According to Baker, she's scheduled to play a mixture of lock and second-row.
