Aliccia King-Reid wins Accor x NRL School to Work art competition.

Aliccia's artwork "Self Expression (Who am i?) " was to prompt individuals like herself to think about the person who lies within our bodies. Aliccia used earthy tones to signify her connection to the beautiful earth in which we are lucky enough to live in. Aliccia's message whilst creating her artwork was to express herself, hoping other individuals will be able to think about their true identity whilst looking at this piece.

Aliccia's art work is now hanging in the front foyer of the Mantra hotel in Sydney CBD. Well done Allicia!

NRL School to Work participant Krstel Petrevski was a guest speaker for Kmart and Target's Leadership team on Tuesday.

Over 50 Managers across Victoria listened to Krstel share her story of growing up in Halls Creek W.A, and moving across the other side of the country to attend school at the young age of 11. Krstel spoke of moving away from her community, culture and family, and the vast cultural difference she experienced in coming to a big city of Melbourne. Her courage and strong connection to culture and family, provided her with a determination and focus to achieve and make her family proud. She also spoke about wanting to be a role model for other Aboriginal youth back in her community to demonstrate you can also reach your dreams and goals. Krstel shared with Kmart and Target leadership group the importance of providing a safe cultural place for their Aboriginal staff, and to ensure they create a sense of belonging within their workplace so people can thrive and achieve success.

Krstel graduated high school last year, received a University place to study a Bachelor of Sports Science Degree, and was picked up in the AFLW with the Melbourne Demons.

Krstel has achieved more than most at such a young age, her courage, determination to succeed, and her strong identity has paved the way for her to become a strong leader amongst her peers, community and family. Well done Krstel on everything you are achieving.
