Sophie undertook a school-based apprenticeship with Wallan Neighbourhood House, studying a Certificate III in Business at Goulburn Institute of TAFE, whilst also completing her VCE.
Sophie believes that business skills will serve her well in a changing world. Working in a community organisation with a broad range of people has been an exciting experience that’s seen her develop strong communication skills. Being given the responsibility of report writing, assisting with promotional material, and providing customer support has solidified Sophie’s goals to work in the business field.
Sophie made a beautiful acceptance speech at the Valedictory Dinner, thanking her Parents and the College for the opportunities she has been given. She told of her transformation from a shy timid girl who arrived at the College from overseas, to the strong confident young woman of today.
Sophie is an amazing young person, who has without a doubt, a very bright future.
