Smithton High School student Chloe Quillerat has spent this week in Canberra as one of eighteen winners in the Country to Canberra national leadership program.

Federal Member for Braddon Justine Keay said, “Country to Canberra is a national not for profit organisation that seeks to empower young women from regional Australia.

“Each year Country to Canberra hold a national leadership competition about gender equality for high school students in in rural and remote Australia.

“Chloe Quillerat from Redpa was one of eighteen winners for her work that described her challenges in trying to secure local work as young women.

“Meeting Chloe and hearing her story was one of the real highlights of this week’s parliamentary sitting.

“As the local federal member for Braddon, I was thrilled that our region was represented by Chloe and she deserves recognition for her success.

“Chloe can now return to Circular Head with a greater understanding of the parliamentary process and increased confidence.

“When I asked Chloe what she had learnt through the program her response was ,”to not be afraid to speak what is in your mind” and that the trip had been a “massive eye opener”

“Chloe entered the competition as she want to push herself and not only has she achieved that personal goal, she has been a positive representative from our region on the national stage.”
