Be Social


Kelsi Forrest

I am a Whajuk, Ballardong Nyoongar, Yamatji and Wongi on my father’s side and Mineng Nyoongar on my Mother’s side. I grew up in Geraldton and did all of my schooling up there and most of my family are in Perth, Geraldton, Kalgoorlie and Albany.

Any leadership experiences you have had – trips o/s or any other opportunities. I was on the MADALAH IYLP Scholarship for three years at the start of my university degree. This scholarship helped me out immensely because it meant that I had less negative financial distractions and also access to a variety of opportunities.

I attended the IYLP tertiary conference in 2011 and it was a great experience to meet like-minded university students from around the country. Overall the scholarship was of great value to assist me in the first half of my degrees at uni.

I am in my penultimate year of a combined Bachelor of Laws/Bachelor of Arts (majoring in Poltical Science and International Relations and Indigenous Studies). When I finish university at the end of 2016 I hope to either get a graduate job or do some postgraduate studies, I haven’t completely made up my mind yet :)
