Lu is currently undergoing her Year 11 studies at Brunswick Secondary College and is taking English, Literature, Studio Arts, Spanish, History and Drama. She admits to not thinking that she would be picked to be involved with the Skyline Foundation but now looks forward to seeing the Program can offer her and the new insights it will give her.
Lu has had to overcome financial and mental health challenges after the passing of her mother and becoming homeless. She felt like there was “no place where I felt safe and comfortable as school and home had become overwhelming for me”.
In spite of her struggles, she loves to be creative and is proud of her band and the music she has written and performed, and she intends to continue creating for her own self-expression.
