Bravery - Perseverance - Kindness

Clarissa has recently overcome some significant and adverse challenges. Despite what she has faced she is always able to show a happy face and the ability to work as a youth worker and assist other young people in need even through her own hardships. She has also managed to complete her degree despite the adversity she was facing. She now volunteers in the Doncare iMatter program as a youth leader that goes around to schools and sporting clubs all over the eastern region of Melbourne promoting healthy relationships and discussing gender stereotypes whilst doing her Masters degrees. Clarissa has shown perseverance even in the most difficult of situations and her passion to give back is inspiring.
