West Coast Fever netballer Josie Janz-Dawson will share her career highs and lows with Indigenous students at the Future Footprints Expo on 27 June.
Janz-Dawson, who was raised in Derby, overcame cultural and social challenges to win a scholarship to Presbyterian Ladies College, attend the Australian Institute of Sport and earn a place on WA’s state netball team.
Now, she manages Deadly Sista Girlz with the Wirrpanda Foundation and is passionate about mentoring Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women.
Janz-Dawson will be part of a panel, along with current university students, who share their experiences with more than 200 Indigenous high school students.
In addition to the panel discussion, the Future Footprints Expo will feature exhibitors including TAFEs, universities, education trading providers, government departments, and corporate organisations such as Woodside.
The Expo is organised by the Association of Independent Schools of Western Australia. The association aims to support Indigenous students' engagement in education and to enhance their transition to and from school, to further education, employment or training.
The Expo will be held from 4.00-7.00pm at the UWA Business School on Monday 27 June.
