Sam, a Year 11 student from North Geelong Secondary College, has struggled with the overwhelming feeling of not being able to meet the expectations of others. However, to overcome this disappointment, he is determined to think of it as an opportunity to grow. Sam looks forward to experiencing the educational advantage the program provides for him, making new friends and gaining a new support network.
Sport is an extremely important aspect of Sam’s life. He has achieved numerous state titles in athletics and has also been awarded the League Best and Fairest in his football league. Sam is not only talented in sports, but also in math where he achieved the highest score at his school on the Australian Mathematics Competition twice.
In 2021, Sam’s goal is to study smart and study beyond the set homework. He finds inspiration from his parents who have worked very hard all of their lives to provide for their family.
