Strength and Success
What is resilience?
“Do not judge me by my success, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.”
- Nelson Mandela
Students will develop resilience in life and learning through identifying Indigenous role models of strength and success in the recent past and in the present. Students will analyse the characteristics of strength and success from different perspectives, then move to identify, research and talk with Indigenous students/professionals who have been successful in learning within a tertiary environment. Research focuses on successful and resilient learning strategies and identifying barriers experienced by other tertiary learners.

Born to Run by Hi guys,Ever since I was little I only had one dream - to win a gold medal at the Olympics. When I was twenty-seven years old, my dream came true. I'll never forget that night at the Sydney 2000 Games - as I crossed the finish line, it was as if the whole of Australia was cheering for me. Sometimes I still wonder how it happened. When I was growing up, I felt no different to anyone else. I loved having fun with my brothers, sleeping over at nanna's and going horse riding with my dad. But I especially loved to run. With the help of my family, coaches and teachers, I became the best female 400-metre runner in the world. I hope you enjoy my story, and that it inspires you to chase after your dreams too!
