Jolie Kaja, Winner, nominated by Coffs Coast Community College, Coffs Harbour NSW, studied Certificate III in Individual Support (Aged Care). Originally from the Congo, Jolie fled to a Zambian refugee camp for seven years before arriving in Australia.
Jolie is a single mother with four children who could speak Swahili, French and eight other African languages – but not English – when she first arrived. After earning a Certificate III in English, she decided that aged care was important after seeing the suffering of her people in Congo and Zambia.
She works at St Joseph’s Aged Care in Coffs Harbour as an Assistant in Nursing (AIN).
