Mikee Poblete – RUNNER UP

Banksia Gardens Community Services- Aiming High VCE Support Program

Mikee has been a committed and talented volunteer tutor at the Aiming High VCE Support Program for 14 months. Through this program, he supports year 11 and 12 VCE students in the Hume area. Mikee graduated from VCE two years ago and has shown outstanding commitment to other people over a sustained period. He is currently studying full time at university. Some of Mikee's most valuable attributes include being very approachable, being humble and having great empathy. He is unusual in his breadth of talent and knowledge across many subjects. This combination of subject mastery across fields is inspiring for our students, and helps create bridges for students who feel comfortable in one subject to get help in another area where they may lack confidence.
