“Keep Pushing Forward!”

“Make sure you stay in school and finish Year 12! Keep pushing forward towards your dreams and don’t give up.”

That’s the message from 2018 Stars graduate, Agnes Aruba, whose dream is to work in the Australian Navy as a Chef.

As part of working towards this goal, Agnes has undertaken a Certificate III in Hospitality through the Cowboys Dream, Believe, Achieve program.

Agnes impressed her lecturers by not missing a day over the 12 weeks of the course and for showing an ability to adapt and an eagerness to learn.

In fact, her course mentor was so admiring of Agnes’s work ethic that he recommended her for a job at the local IGA, which she was successful in obtaining.

While working at the IGA, Agnes is currently completing work experience at a Townsville holiday resort, where she continues to refine her hospitality skills.

She is a super Star who is determined to achieve her dream!
