Meet the Crew: Paula Young

Name: Paula Young

Compass Crew Since: 2019

Role: 2IC Nambour Campus

What attracted you to this role?
I have always been drawn to working within the Disability sector, I volunteered for many years helping families with respite support.    

What is the favourite part of your day at Compass?
Meeting and greeting the trainees in the morning and talking to them about their week.  I love the fact that everyday is different and they are enthusiastic to conquer their goals

What is something you have learned as a result of working in the disability support sector?
Anything is possible.  It is so rewarding to be a part of assisting trainees to kick their goals. The trainees also inspire me to work as hard at my own goals in life.

What is something you wish people knew about your role or about the disability community?
Don’t focus on a person’s disability, look at their ability to create new possibilities to make a difference in this world

Any final words / comments / funny anecdotes etc?
Never been in a role where I’ve been called so many Superhero names – thanks to Chris Wilson (Nambour trainee).
