The questions the young people asked really made me think about how far I have come to date with my career and where the future could take me.
This was an amazing event for my motivation.
It was a pleasure to meet and talk with so many Year 10 students. They asked a variety of interesting and thoughtful questions and I hope I was able to give them some ideas.
