Women of Note Casey Mentor Breakfast

On Friday 4 May, Kayla Eastwood, Tanya Oogathoo and ourselves were invited to the Women of Note Casey Mentor Breakfast held at Bunjil Place. This program provides girls with the opportunity to meet successful women in their chosen careers. It also enables young girls to contemplate their career options and share experiences with these women. We were fortunate enough to be inspired by TV presenter and journalist Samantha Lane’s experiences, as a young women searching for her future pathway after High School. She addressed the challenges and obstacles she was confronted with in her search for success, and made it clear that prosperity cannot be accomplished without hardship and effort.

We were allocated table numbers based on our area of interest on what we would like to study in the future. Our tables discussed Medicine and Health career options, and Legal and International Studies. Within these tables of passionate female students, we were given the privilege of interacting with mentors who shared their career experience in that chosen area. We were given advice on how to continue to strive for our educational goals, and reach our best potential. They elaborated on their experiences as a woman in their chosen field, and the expectations and requirements that had to be met in order for them to be eligible for that specific occupation.

We as female students in Year 11 were fortunate enough to have experienced this program which ultimately supports and guides young women, in their final years of schooling and upon entering adulthood.
