Yalari Success Story: Paying It Forward – Australian Story
Australian Story has some absolute bangers, and Paying It Forward is up there with the best. Paying It Forward tells the story of Waverley Stanley, an Indigenous man whose primary school teacher, Rosemary Bishop, saw his potential and assisted in getting Waverley a scholarship. Now with his wife Llew Mullins, Waverley has a not-for-profit organisation providing scholarships for Indigenous children to go to boarding school. Ultimately, this a beautiful story about seeing and valuing not someone’s skin colour, but their goodness and their capability. Warning: might shed a little happy tear.
