Sharlene Smith

My name is Sharlene Smith. I was born in St Georgeand I am a descendant of the Kamilaroi people.

As a proud mother of four beautiful children, I am inspired to always keep going-even when times are challenging. My children are my passion.

For the most part of my childhood I was raised in foster care in different locations around Queensland.

I am now proud to say that I have completed my certificates in Legal Aid studies and Business Administration.

My time is spent working part-time for a local youth community centre, volunteering for various groups in the community.

My aspiration is to work with young people to achieve a more positive future.

I like to think that life is a pathway and you choose which way you want to go.

DESCRIPTION: My deadly story sees the future in our youth.
