Sam – independence and service

15 August 2018

Sam works in the perishables section of a supermarket in Wagga Wagga “I’m good at my job because I’m helpful and friendly with customers. And I know where stuff goes,” she jokes.

Sam’s saving up to take driving lessons. “Work’s important so I can earn money and have independence,” she says.
