Tanay Ropeyarn first joined CYLP in 2009 as an Academic Secondary Leader, attending Cathedral School in Townsville.

Upon graduating, she went on to study a Bachelor of Laws at James Cook University from 2010 and continued with CYLP as an Academic Tertiary Leader.

After graduating from her Bachelor Degree and completing her further required studies, Tanay was officially admitted into the legal profession at the Cairns Supreme Court in late June.

Tanay now works as a Solicitor at the Queensland Indigenous Family Violence Legal Service and, as far as she is aware, is the first person from her home community of Injinoo to become a solicitor.

Tanay has achieved wonderful things already; we look forward to seeing her continue to achieve great heights into the future as well.
