Upon commencing the role, she shared her excitement: “I am thrilled to expose young minds to future career pathways and the endless potential that their skills can unlock.” Bella has lived in the Clarence Valley for over thirty years with an eclectic career journey. Bella confesses that “my greatest job has been the eye-opening world of parenting. My two beautiful children have taught me the biggest lessons of all. I developed some fundamental skills I would use in my future career.” After Bella’s son started school, she volunteered and started her Certificate IV in School Learner Support Officer. She found that she loved being part of a community that nurtured young minds, working at Westlawn Public School as a teacher’s aide.
