Melissa is a Year 12 student at Dandenong High School who studies English, Further Maths, Business Management, Health and Human Development and Legal Studies. She aims to pursue her passion for human rights, the law, and fairness, regardless of race or gender.
Upon joining the program, she feels Skyline is a “warm, welcoming happy place and family” where the constant support from peers and mentors helps her grow.
