Rising Star: Imahni Lenoy

Imahni Lenoy, Year 12 Heatley Star, is on her way to a career in Defence, having recently passed her Defence assessment! Now she’s in training for the next step – her fitness test.

She chose to pursue this pathway after a conversation with Stars Transitions Manager (QLD), Emma Ferguson, who supported her to sign up for a work placement with the Military Police.

Stars also assisted Imahni to sign up for a RAAF camp over the last school holidays to help her understand the many different career options available in Defence.

Imahni has been a part of the Heatley Stars Program since it commenced at the school in 2018 and has been actively involved since the beginning.

She has attended incentive camps and high-attendance celebration activities, as well as spending as much time as possible in the Stars Room interacting with her Mentors and other students.

Imahni has developed high-level leadership skills throughout her time with Stars and is proud to be this year’s Heatley Secondary College Indigenous School Captain.

Throughout 2022, Imahni has been diligent in going through the steps to apply to Defence, with Stars supporting her throughout the process and linking her in with the local Indigenous Defence Mentor, Shay Butler.
