REMEMBER the name Tuscany Abala.
International volunteer, champion athlete, Duke of Edinburgh Award winner, passionate Indigenous young woman – and a much-loved member of the Sarina Russo Job Access Caloundra staff.
Include a recently completed Certificate III in Business to Tuscany’s already bulging resume and its evident and the Caloundra State High year 12 student is clearly a teenager with the world at her feet.
“Tuscany was a delight to have in the office and she always completed her tasks in a very timely manner,” Sarina Russo Job Access Caloundra Manager Alison Henschell said.
“She was amazing at self-tracking her hours and her theory work to ensure she was working towards her goal of completing her Certificate III in Business well in advance of deadline, which she achieved.
“Tuscany thoroughly enjoyed her traineeship with Sarina Russo and she formed a great relationship with all the staff in the Caloundra office.”
Born in the Northern Territory, Tuscany is a proud Khungarakung woman and her passion for community involvement enabled her to travel to Cambodia in 2017 where she helped rebuild villages, orphanages and schools destroyed in the wet season.
Having completed her Certificate III in Business, with the support of Mission Australia, and in the final year of school, Tuscany plans to study paramedical science and hopes her Certificate III will enable her to secure an administration role at a hospital until she completes her degree.
