This is Justin, who has been an integral member of our Garden Maintenance crew for three years. Justin has both Cape York and Torres Strait Islander heritage – his Mum’s side is from Old Mapoon and his Dad’s side hails from Moa Island (St Paul’s Island) in the Torres Strait. His language name is Yupangathi.
“I like basketball and fishing. My favourite NBA team is the LA Lakers and my favourite player is Kobe Bryant. I admire Bryant because he works hard and plays hard every game. I look up to him and try to emulate his work ethic in my work at Bama, and try to lead by example.
“The best thing about Bama is working with the guys. I like working with Terrence because he gets in and gets the work done and is a hard worker. I also like how the Support and Wellbeing program supports all of the guys, and I really like when we do team building sessions on a Tuesday afternoon.
“I’m most proud of getting my Cert III in Parks and Gardens since working at Bama. Eventually, I’d like to run my own business.”
