From labourer to waiter - create your own path to success!

THE AP­PLI­CANT

Name: Awan

Former roles: Tr­ishaw driver, labourer, waiter

Qual­i­fi­ca­tions: English course; Di­ploma of Hospi­tal­ity, Cer­tifi­cate IV in Com­mer­i­cal Cook­ery – TAFE NSW

New job: Chef

 

I’m 27 and from a vil­lage near Banyuwangi in East Java, In­done­sia. I left home af­ter high school to make money to sup­port my fam­ily, in­clud­ing work­ing as a tr­ishaw driver in Bor­neo. In 2010, I was work­ing as a waiter in Bali when I met two in­cred­i­ble peo­ple, Peter and Trevor, who helped to change my life. After tak­ing an English course in 2013 at the In­done­sian Aus­tralia Lan­guage Foun­da­tion in Bali, they of­fered me an op­por­tu­nity to study in Aus­tralia.

After dis­cus­sions with an in­ter­na­tional stu­dent ad­viser at TAFE NSW, I en­rolled into a Di­ploma of Hospi­tal­ity and grad­u­ated with dis­tinc­tion. It was very chal­leng­ing at first, com­ing from a non-English speak­ing back­ground and a very dif­fer­ent cul­ture, but with the help of great teach­ers, friends and my now Aus­tralian fam­ily, Peter and Trevor, I man­aged to adapt.

I de­cided to ex­pand my skills with a Cer­tifi­cate IV in Com­mer­cial Cook­ery at the North­ern Syd­ney In­sti­tute, which I com­pleted this year.

After all the hard work I got a job at The Boat House Res­tau­rant at Shel­ley Beach and later at Pilu at Fresh­wa­ter in Syd­ney, where I am now.

 

I’ve come a long way from my days of sleep­ing in a tr­ishaw in Bor­neo to work­ing in one of Syd­ney’s top restau­rants. My work over the past three years has also helped me to make enough money to sup­port my fam­ily and re­build their home in Java. My long-term goal is to one day open my own restau­rant. I couldn’t have come all this way with­out the men­tor­ing of Peter and Trevor, and TAFE teach­ers.
