Life-changing experiences working with vulnerable communities in Africa taught Lily Edema about the powerful role education can play in young people’s lives.
Seeing education as an agent for positive change, Lily completed an early childhood education and care diploma as part of a Holmesglen Free TAFE course.
It gave her the qualification to work as a full-time co-educator in a three-year-old kindergarten and start a new career.
“I have always loved working with children from an early age. I was involved in programs with kindergartens while I was at school, which is where I first realised how much I enjoyed it."
