Find your why

I work at AIME which is the Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience.
My passion is definitely enabling a stronger platform for Indigenous people.
I've had the privilege of a good education, so now I want to pass that opportunity on to kids in the community.

Meet Lizzie

I’m working as a graphic designer and illustrator at a local studio. I got this job in my second last year at uni. Doing practical assignments and assessments were a big help in me getting a job before graduating. Not only having that portfolio of work to take to the interview, but the support I got from teachers and other students meant I was confident in my work and selling myself as an employee.
