Arnetta W.
Arnetta W., Skyline Class of 2020

After realising the great opportunities she had missed out on due to her apprehension, Arnetta was determined to take a chance with applying to the Skyline Program.

She has overcome many challenges, most notably the financial struggles that were exacerbated after a family member received a diagnosis of a terminal illness that would prevent Arnetta from pursuing tertiary studies if not for Skyline’s support.

She is currently attending Westall Secondary College, studying English, Maths Methods, Physics, Chemistry and Environmental Science as a Year 12 student after finishing Biology ¾ in 2019.

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. 2020 sees her “putting 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 to continue stepping outside her comfort zone to push herself to “new limits”.
