Arnetta W.
Arnetta W., Skyline Class of 2020

Arnetta attended Westall Secondary College and 
studied English, Maths Methods, Physics, Chemistry and Environmental Science as a Year 12 student having finished Biology ¾ in 2019. After realising the great opportunities she had missed out on due to her apprehension, Arnetta was determined to take a chance by applying to the Skyline Program.

She has overcome many challenges, most notably the financial struggles that were exacerbated after a family member was diagnosed with a terminal illness. Without significant support, Arnetta felt prevented from pursuing tertiary studies.

She is most proud of overcoming her fears of public speaking to become School Captain and is excited to make the most of her leadership skills. In 2020, she strived to “put 110% of my full efforts towards every task I undertake” to make her parents, who have overcome and sacrificed so much for her future, proud and tocontinue stepping outside her comfort zone to push herself to “new limits”.
