Despite facing the struggles of dealing with his parents’ divorce and attending a school in a low social economic area, Riko is a strong academic achiever and has been actively involved with his school community.
He has had a variety of leadership roles at Keysborough Secondary College such as the position of Year 10 Captain and House Captain. He has also played saxophone in the school Senior Band and does taekwondo outside of school, but he is most proud of being accepted into the Victorian Young Leaders to China Program and being invited to the Convergence Science Network Anniversary.
The Skyline Program has supported him with financial difficulties and allowed him to make meaningful connections. Riko loves to solve problems and has dreams of becoming a doctor in future.
