Kathy admits that if her school did not offer the opportunity to apply for the Skyline Foundation Program, she would not have realised what she was capable of. Her family struggles financially and she has had to work to help out at home on top of beginning VCE at Braybrook College and undertaking Legal Studies ¾.
Kathy is passionate about creative writing and spends her spare time nurturing her talents. It has paid off and she was shortlisted for the John Marsden Young Writers Award in 2019 as a non-fiction writer. This year she intends to do her best and to find a balance between work, school and social life.
