Well 2014 was a really big year for me I achieved a real lot both personally and professionally. For basically all my life I had never known what my passion was and what I could do that would give life purpose and make going to work something that was enjoyable not just a job. In 2014 I found something that I want to do for the rest of my life and it all began with an ad in the local Newspaper. I was reading the paper one Saturday morning and there was an advertisement for Community Training Australia and how they were taking enrolments at the Malanda Campus for the Diploma of Community Services the course was one week per month in class and the rest was on the internet so I could do it from Home, This was perfect. As it allowed me to volunteer on the job to learn the practical side of Case Management. This is how I came to find the best job I have ever had ,and meet the nicest group of people that anyone could have the pleasure of working with. One day whilst grabbing some meat for dinner after class I was walking past an office that I had not really noticed before, but this day I stopped and looked to see what they did this was the Office of The Eacham Community Help Organisation or ECHO as it is known in the area. I decided to go in and ask if they needed volunteers I spoke to the lady behind the counter and then to the boss who asked if I could bring in my resume and the rest is history. In just 4 months I had My Diploma and a job that is more fulfilling than I could of imagined.
So believe in yourself and you can do anything. I am proof of that before this I had no purpose and never dreamed that I could enjoy going to work every day but In 6 months I turned my life around.
