A 12-year-old who started scrubbing headstones eight years ago to overcome her fear of ghosts says it’s her dream job and wants to clean graves ‘forever and ever’.

Tj Kleeman and her family moved to a home that backed onto a cemetery with more than 3,500 graves in Tweed Heads, in north-east New South Wales, in 2012.

The then four-year-old and her little brother Dash were terrified of phantoms lurking in the shadows, so their mother Tabetha took them on walks through the graveyard to help put their minds at ease.

When the mother-of-two suggested they give a few dirty headstones a good scrub, Tj knew she had found her life’s passion.

‘When we first moved here I was like “oh my gosh”, I was so scared, but then mum suggested we start cleaning the graves and I felt better,’ she told Daily Mail Australia.

‘I like cleaning graves because there’s this feeling – it’s not even a word – it’s a great feeling that I get, and I want to do it forever and ever.’
