Clarissa's family-backed journey to success

From the very beginning, it was clear that she was destined for a hands-on career. While attending school, Clarissa found herself drawn to the world of trades and was eager to explore this exciting avenue. Her desire to be hands-on and her fascination with the trades prompted her to take a bold step. She decided to venture into plumbing, a field known for its challenges and opportunities. It was a decision that would shape her future in remarkable ways.

Clarissa's journey to success is not just her own; it's a collective effort fuelled by family support. In a heartwarming moment captured in the photo above, Ilma and William Barby, Clarissa's grandparents attended her sign-up, symbolising the unwavering encouragement she receives from her loved ones. They have not only been her cheerleaders but have also played a practical role by providing her with transportation to and from work, a lifeline for Clarissa until she obtains her P-plates.

Clarissa's transition into the world of plumbing was made smoother thanks to the invaluable assistance of Dane Bobart, her industry consultant from Sarina Russo Apprenticeships she signed up with. Dane played a pivotal role in guiding Clarissa through the apprenticeship process. His expertise, mentorship, and unwavering support ensured Clarissa was equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to excel in her chosen field.

Through Dane's guidance and Clarissa's determination, she not only embraced the plumbing trade but thrived in it. Her apprenticeship journey is a testament to the impact of a strong support system, both at home and through dedicated professionals like Dane.

As Clarissa continues to grow in her plumbing career, the future holds boundless possibilities for this young and driven apprentice.
