Hear from our Aspirants
Carla Whitton, 33 years old
Carla joined Women’s Business Second Chance hub to get some support and assistance with completing her diploma in childcare. As the primary carer for six children, Carla finds it hard to have time for herself! Having worked in schools for the past seven years, Carla appreciates the need for more Aboriginal people in teaching positions. She is currently working as a Student Support Liaison Officer at a preschool and wants to complete her diploma to become a childcare teacher.
Yulara Frail, 24 years old
Yulara worked very hard during high school and, upon graduation, completed a traineeship at Commonwealth Bank. She continued working there until she gave birth to her first child.
Today, as a mother of three, Karla joins the Women’s Business Second Chance hub to upskill and get out of the house to be around other women. Yulara’s dream is to work in community and empower other Aboriginal people to strive for greatness.
Dolie Ufi, 28 years old
Growing up in the Mount Druitt region, Dolie saw firsthand the disadvantage our elders face advocating for their own healthcare. Having worked many years in community health, Dolie believes more support in general is needed for Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander people to navigate the healthcare system.
An incredibly inspiring woman, Dolie is the Founder/Chairperson of Yaama Mou’i Services, a disability service that provides NDIS services. She has already made crossroads, implementing more culturally safe practices at a local health clinic here in Western Sydney.
