Horticulturalist and National Skills Week Ambassador Sally Moylan "I want to encourage young people to care for the environment and to lead healthy lifestyles - through physical activity, gaining a trade and their own food such as bush tucker" . Sally Moylan is the ACT Government Parks and City Services Officer and was awarded the 2014 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Student of the Year, Australian Training Awards.
Since growing up in rural New South Wales, Sally Moylan has been passionate about the environment, bush tucker and caring for the land. Looking for a career path that would allow her to work outdoors, Sally enrolled in the Canberra Institute of Technology's Certificate III in Horticulture (Parks and Gardens). In recognition of her outstanding achievements in her field of study, Sally was named the 2014 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Student of the Year at the Australian Training Awards.
"I have a real passion for young people and want to combine and use my experience in the sporting and horticulture areas to pass that on and encourage young people to care for the environment and to lead healthy lifestyles through physical activity, gaining a trade and growing their own food such as bush tucker," Sally said.
Over the next year, Sally will represent the vocational education and training sector as an ambassador and advocate its benefits. "I want to be seen as a leader and a good role model in my community and an advocate for young Indigenous people of Australia. And hopefully by sharing my story and achievements, I'll inspire the youth of Australia to follow their dreams and believe that they too can do what they've always wanted to do.
