Chereeta’s Story

Chereeta

Chereeta

Chereeta is a Paakantyi woman who was born in Mildura, Victoria. Her ambition is to study business, and then eventually own her own business, but above all to make her family proud of her.

Although she loved primary school Chereeta never completed High school because she was bullied. The PTS course therefore offered her the opportunity to pursue her dreams even though she didn’t finish her secondary schooling.
Initially frightened and worried about doing any further study, she has enjoyed meeting the students in her PTS classes who come from a range of backgrounds and places, and has enjoyed learning about the ways and language of others from all over Australia.
