What’s Next: Sticking up for yourself (with Drisana Levitzke-Gray)

Hey– I’m Jay, I’m 16, and I’m in my last year of high school. Thinking about my future can be stressful, but I have so many opportunities to be excited about. In the midst of exams and lockdowns, I’ve enjoyed thinking about what’s next for me in life.

That’s why in this series, I’ve been talking to people who have been down this road before. In this episode I talked to Drisana Levitzke-Gray– when she was my age, people told her that her English wasn’t good enough and that she’d never make it work at university. Since then, she won the Young Australian of the Year award (2015) and has taught English to deaf students around the world.
