Over the last four years, we have seen Sokha flourish into the successful woman and mother she is today. Here is her story…
“I was born in Cambodia and I speak Khmer. In 2012 I met an Australian man and in 2019 we got married and settled into life in Melbourne. In 2019, I started learning English at the Yarraville Community Centre in Footscray. I knew I needed to undertake further training to get an ongoing job in Australia, so in April 2021, I enrolled in to the ‘Skills for Work and Study: Aged Care’ pathway course.
Finishing my course was delayed by a few months because I gave birth to my beautiful little girl. After my baby was about 6 months old, I returned to YCC to finish off the last parts of my certificate course, including the practical placement component at an aged care facility in Kingsville. I am now a fully qualified Personal Care Attendant and am working in the aged care industry.”
We congratulate you Sokha and wish you all the very best for your bright future.
We acknowledge the traditional owners of the land, the Wurundjeri Woi wurrung and Boon wurrung peoples of the Kulin Nation and lands on which Yarraville Community Centre is located and where we work. We pay our respect to their Elders, past, present and emerging. Always was and always will be, Aboriginal land.
