New ambassador for Casino High School
WHEN Isaachar Fraser made a speech in Year 10, she had no idea of the ripple effect her words would have.
Her speech was presented at a school assembly as if she were Australia’s first indigenous prime minister.
The audience empathised with her story. She was recorded, invited to a gala ball and performed in front of the New South Wales Premier.
This opened up various doors for 16-year-old Isaachar, including job offers and being named by the Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience as Casino High School’s 2016 ambassador.
“I’m not sure yet what being an ambassador involves,” Isaachar said of the role previously held by student Wayne Gordon.
“People have said I am a leader in my community in Casino.”
