A little bit about me...

I am currently 17 years of age and graduated from Nanango State High School last year. I may not have as much experience in trades as some others, but I can say confidently that I'll be one of your fastest learners and hardest workers on the job. I have completed a certificate II in manufacturing at my time at school and very much enjoyed the subject. Within, and as well as outside the school, I am known for my sporting abilities. Most of my life I have played tennis at a high level once representing QLD. Recently in the last couple years I have transitioned off the court and onto the track. I have produced greater results in the short time that I have taken up this new sport, coming as far as winning nationals for cross country and representing QLD at track nationals. Together, with my friendly attitude and good behaviour all round, I finished my senior year with an enormous amount of recognition by being awarded Nanango State High School's Sportsman of the year and Caltex best all rounder. Very recently I was nominated and won Junior Sportsperson in the southburnett at the Australia Day Awards in 2019. Presently I work at the Yarraman Bakery four days a week while still managing my lifestyle to fit in running. Although this may seem irrelevant for trades to you, I believe it shows the level of determination, commitment and hard work that I possess.
