“I stumbled across Inclusion WA in late 2014 after taking some time off from work and Uni life to focus on my biggest hobby, music. I was sent on a training day at Inclusion WA and thought ‘wow this is where I want to work!’ The rest is history, my ‘gap year’ lasted for about two months and I’ve been here ever since.”
