I HAD one of those funny “a-ha” moments last week. I suddenly realised I knew people who did stuff. You know, had made something of themselves.
I have three talented friends working in the television industry, a number of friends who are dedicated teachers - one in particular working with very difficult students and juggling a role as year adviser. Another is about to move to Colombia to teach. I have one friend in publishing and living overseas, another friend working in the aid field and again living overseas, one working with victims of sex trafficking and another an advocate for the health, safety and rights of sex workers. I have a friend who pitches to bring big corporate conferences to town – and as a result knows every nook and cranny of Sydney like the back of her hand. I have another friend communicating the inner workings of a big bank to its customers and stakeholders. I have friends who are cops, childcare workers, community advocates, journalists, mums, dads, accountants, beauty therapists, sole business operators and postal managers ... by golly. I’m so proud.
