Job Role: Southern River Deadly Sista Girlz Mentor
Location: Perth, WA
Describe a typical days work at the Foundation:
There is never a dull moment. A typical day for me is being surrounded by the girls at Southern River, whether that’s in the session or during their class breaks and before and after school. We do one on one mentoring with the girls when they come in with problems or just for a yarn. Whenever they need us, we’re there. Encouraging and helping them to achieve their goals; whether that’s assisting them with getting a job or helping them into a sporting team.
Favourite part of being a mentor: You’re never going to have a boring day. Always being around the girls, having a good relationship, bond and connection with them. Making a difference in people’s lives and helping them the best way I can.
