Shehelah Dassenaike, Alumni Wellbeing Facilitator

Skyline welcomes Shehelah as one of our Alumni Wellbeing Facilitator.

Shehelah says, “Skyline has changed the course of my life. My mum, with me and my sister, fled from our home in Sri Lanka, escaping serious family issues. We lived in hiding in Australia for over a decade.

Our opportunities were limited by financial strain and we lived in a state of fear, my future seemed bleak. But, with Skyline's help in VCE, I've done what I previously thought was unachievable. I finished high school, secured a position at the University of Melbourne and I am now on the path to a successful and optimistic life for me and my family.”


Shehelah is now generously giving back to Skyline, already as an elected co-leader of the Skyline Alumni Community.
