Kirsten Howard, Shooting Stars Derby Program Coordinator, is in the running for the annual Derby Boab Quest where entrants are nominated for their outstanding work in supporting local charities through community fundraising events. The funds raised this year by Kirsten will go towards supporting Shooting Stars girls at Derby to participate fully in the program, assisting them with uniforms, external sports carnival registration fees, and additional educational materials for the Shooting Stars Room.
Kirsten was the first Aboriginal young woman to complete the Shooting Stars employment pathway, successfully undertaking a 12-month traineeship. Kirsten is the personification of the Shooting Stars mission, and we look forward to seeing the current participants enjoy the same successful outcomes. Kirsten said it was a privilege to contribute to the growth and development of young Aboriginal women in her community, “I just wanted to help the young girls in my community…there’s no doubt being involved in sport and Shooting Stars helps them achieve their goals, and to witness the change in attitude and confidence in the students has been amazing.”
“I’m motivated to make a difference and I’m inspired by the work of Glass Jar Australia and the Shooting Stars Program. I want to support an organisation that has supported me.” – Kirsten Howard
