Two years ago, Rose was struggling. “When I first encountered Red Cross, I had literally no pathway in life,” she says. Her home life was unstable. She felt discriminated against at work. A committed athlete, sport was the one thing that made her happy, but a serious injury meant she was sitting on the sidelines.
Meeting Red Cross case workers helped change all that. Rose spent a year with Red Cross, and through a mix of sports programs, group sessions, one-to-one support and goal setting, she was able to get her life back on track. The support she received helped her recover her confidence and self-image.
Today, Rose is living in a safe and stable home with her partner and his family. She has a new job with Deadly Choices, an organisation dedicated to empowering Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to make healthy choices. And she’s getting back to where she loves to be more than anywhere else: the footy field. She’s aiming to get back onto the National Indigenous Women’s Rugby Team, and from there, she has her sights set on an international career.
Rose knows there’s no limits to what she can do now.
