Heba Blair, Member of the Skyline Youth Parliament Team

As a Skyline Alumna, Heba has been welcomed as a member of the Skyline Youth Parliament Team, leader in the SALT Team, a mentor in the Mentorship Program and previously a Residential Program Student Mentor. She has also started an online study club to support Alumni through remote learning.

Coming from a town with around a thousand people, a hundred kilometres northeast of Melbourne, opportunities for Heba are limited. She studied English, Health and Human Development, Sociology and Business at Yea High School and is one of three sisters. Despite the challenges of living in a rural area, she has successfully completed VCE and is transitioning into higher education.

Heba considers that Skyline has given her “life-altering” and “miraculous” opportunities. Her time at Skyline has been filled with inspiring individuals, once in a lifetime experiences and life-long friendships, free from judgement and full of like-minded individuals. Skyline has empowered her by enhancing her education and career prospects as well as brightened her future.

Heba looks forward to building upon her good study habits and “try hard attitude” to make the most of her talents.
