Bonnie Fejo – Trainee Administration Officer Katherine

bonnie

Hello, my name is Bonnie Fejo and I am a local indigenous woman. I have lived in Katherine all my life and my family heritage originates from two different regions, Darwin and Arnhem land. In 2010, I joined the girl’s school academy (Stronger Smarter Sisters) at Katherine High School in which I completed my education. The academy aimed to assist indigenous students become stronger and confident in their school work and further into employment. This is where i first met Alicia Grenfell who worked as one of the Mentors in the SSS program. I graduated school in 2015 and wanted to see what employment opportunities were available to me.

I enrolled with Jobfind Centre’s Australia in Katherine and was referred to a Work for the Dole activity to gain additional work practices. I participated for about a month then was approached by Alicia Grenfell, CDP Business Manager Katherine and I was given an opportunity to work as a (Trainee Administration Officer). I am still currently employed by Jobfind in the Katherine Region and can honestly say my self-confidence has grown dramatically.
