Check out some of our graduate peer educator comments:

  • “Talking Realities young parent program is the most important thing I have done in my life, I’m back at school and I learnt so much about looking after my baby, I feel better about me”
  • “Honestly, without this program I would not be where I am today. Talking Realities gave me a sense of purpose and I would not be at University now without this program”
  • "The program helped bring about all the positive changes in my life. They supported me, helped me, trained me, and guided me and helped improve my self-esteem and motivated me into Uni.”
