2018 Stars Graduate, Victoria Blundell, has been working full time since Year 12, intent on saving money for University.
“I was doing okay in High School when I joined Stars, but my Mentors not only ensured I came to school and had food in my belly – they pushed me to strive for greatness!” Victoria says.
“After graduating, I knew I wanted to have a year to earn money, I just didn’t know where to begin.”
“Stars helped me find a role I was interested in and, even better, helped me explore opportunities for apprenticeships and traineeships.”
“With the help of my Mentors, I was able to apply online and ended up being hired as an Administration Officer Trainee doing a Certificate III in Business Administration at Townsville Hospital!”
Victoria says she is enjoying working full-time in a clinical area and is grateful to Stars for helping her explore so many opportunities.
“Without Stars, I may only have been able to get a part-time job, which wouldn’t have allowed me to earn enough to move out of home,” she says.
“I also wouldn’t have been able to work towards gaining a Certificate, and I’m so glad I did because it will enhance my Resume and contribute to my future.”
