Darcy, a Year 11 student from North Geelong Secondary College, has been struggling with perfectionism. Despite her history of low confidence, she is proud of changing her mindset to focus on herself rather than on the desired outcome. Hence, she applied to the Skyline Program to prove to herself that she is capable of anything she puts her mind to.
She is passionate about raising awareness about mental health, both others and of her own, realizing the many stigmas within society that prevent people from reaching out. Darcy finds inspiration from moments of wisdom or revelation and in 2021, wants to “switch off [her] critical and analytic mind and simply indulge herself in the surroundings.
Darcy has also been a dancer for 10 years and her favourite genres are contemporary, tap and hip hop. She also enjoys playing netball and reading as it offers her “multitudes of pleasures”.
