Indigenous Pre-Law Program
"Winter School made me realise that it doesn’t matter where you come from"

Winter School made me realise that it doesn’t matter where you come from, or what your family is like. I was going to be able to achieve at university. It made me believe that I’m going to be able to get through.

It’s difficult if you come from a community, like mine, where educational achievement isn’t pushed very much. There are Aboriginal students who are achieving, but most of them don’t have the dream to go to university – it’s never made an option for you.

It was inspiring to meet Aboriginal people from a similar background who have the same kind of dream as you do, or who’ve already realised that dream.
