Lily applied to the Skyline Program shortly after her mother passed away “in the hopes of finding an alternative support system, with people who understand the value of education”.
She is grateful of being welcomed “with open arms” into a community where she could connect with like-minded peers and truly felt like she fit in.
She is currently a Year 12 student at Surf Coast Secondary College and studying English, Indonesian, Psychology, Legal Studies and Further Maths, on top of undertaking first year Psychology at Deakin.
She is passionate about netball and has been playing for her local club for the past nine years. She is determined to set herself up “with a future where I have the opportunity to help people who are struggling” as well as learning more about herself and her ambitions.
