Student story

Image of Hsar Thein Ju, horticulture student

“I was volunteering with my local Karen refugee community at Werribee Park when I was offered a full-time horticulture apprenticeship. I am very passionate about the natural environment so this has been the perfect opportunity to start a career doing what I love. 

I spend one day a week at The Gordon in Geelong and enjoy this balance of theory and practical. In the future, I would like to become a park ranger and continue my passion for nature and wildlife.”
