Stanley soars to new heights

Stanley started at Sunshine Coast University earlier this year, doing the foundation studies needed to start on the health and medical subjects he’s enrolled in.

Stanley is from a big family, and a small town, but he knew that to realise his dreams he would have to leave his small Central Queensland community.

It was a tough decision for Stanley to move away from his friends and family at Woorabinda, but boarding at Rockhampton, about 170kms away, meant he could finish Year 12. 

​By following his dreams, Stanley's bringing a whole lot of good to his community. And you can too. Listen to Stanley's podcast and then take an action for Good with Red Cross
