Ayan Ali - WINNER

Banksia Gardens Community Services- Aiming High VCE Support Program

Ayan is a diligent, ambitious student who has been attending the VCE Support Program since the beginning of 2018. Initially, program tutors noticed Ayan exhibiting signs of anxiety and frustration, particularly when working on English assignments. Through regular participation in the program, Ayan has demonstrated remarkable resilience and determination and is now producing a high standard of work in English “the subject that previously paralysed her”. In addition to working through her anxieties and improving her academic results, Ayan has also been a welcoming and helpful member of the Program. She mingles with students from other schools, shares resources, and offers advice.
