This is Quinlyn, a Guugu Yimithirr man from Hope Vale. Quinlyn plays for Northern Pride and loves to spend his weekends fishing at Cooya Beach.

“The best thing about Bama is working with the crews. I like how everyone gets along – you don’t feel left out and you feel welcome in the place. I like working with Gerald because he listens to his crew members, has a good sense of humour and work ethic.

My role model is my Dad. He has taught me a lot. He has taught me good work ethics, whether it is at work or at home. A good role model has courage and honesty.

I’m proud of the fact that straight after graduating from high school at 17, I moved out of home to play for the Canberra Raiders Rugby League U20s team and learned to be independent. Five years from now, I’d like to be my own boss with my own business in landscaping.”
