Origin stars doing some great work

Fogs photo  I had the pleasure of visiting the FOGs (Former Origin Greats) Indigenous Employment & Careers Expo yesterday in Townsville.

I had never been to one before and I must say I was impressed at the quality of the displays and the attendance at the event. I think this a great initiative as it exposes our young people to many fantastic options in the career, employment and training fields.

While not delving into the enormous social problems of indigenous Australians in this post I for one think that these sort of activities do more to help solve the biggest priority in my humble opinion. Putting indigenous people into meaningful employment.

There are probably as many solutions and opinions as people in Australia on how to fix these problems. It was great to see the Origin Stars there as role models to show that hard work and smart thinking can place the world at your feet.

Thanks for the opportunity of attending.

Cheers Michael
