Meet proud Mununjali man Lindsay, an aspiring barber and one of our Young, Black and Proud 2023 scholarship recipients.
At only 15 years old Lindsay has demonstrated his passion and dedication to his education at the Murri School, receiving the Principals Award on multiple occasions for his hard work and commitment to his studies.
While his talents also extend to art and sports, it was our academic stream that caught Lindsay’s eye. With his sights set on a career in barbering a Young, Black and Proud scholarship has given him the financial boost he needed to upskill and break into the industry.
He plans to use his funds wisely, upgrading his tools to ensure he can hit the ground running. Beyond tools, Lindsay also intends to invest in further education, signing up for an entry-level barbering course to equip him with the technical skills and knowledge needed to excel in this field.
Lindsay’s journey is not just about personal aspirations, it’s about giving back and contributing to the community. His past roles as a student mentor and camp leader as well as his involvement in bush tukka programs, sharing his knowledge with younger community members showcases his dedication to helping others learn about and connect with their culture.
Lindsay’s story is a testament to the power of commitment and determination. His unique interest in a career as a barber has set him on a path of exploration and skill development; one that he’s eager to navigate with focus and hard work. Lindsay’s story serves as an inspiration to others, reminding us all that pursuing our passions with dedication can lead to promising and fulfilling journeys.
