“I was pretty keen for extra advice from people who were in different professions,” said Susana.
“My parents’ opinions could be a bit overwhelming and overpowering. So it was a little better for me to chat online with a mentor outside of school, because I could just let all my ideas ﬂow for what I wanted in the future.
Then she could sort of help direct me into the path that I wanted to go.”
Susana told her mentor how hard it had been to see family members in poor health in her mum’s Pacific Island village. With her mentor’s guidance, Susana decided to become a medic in the navy. And taking part in iTrack also helped her to grow personally.
