Laura Skerten is a young woman who is motivated and determined to live her good life. After struggling to have the confidence to pursue her goals, Laura is now going after what she wants in life.
Laura has recently started a Next Step Women’s Course at CPIT, which she applied for on her own accord. She absolutely loves the course, being a student at CPIT and getting to know other students. She is enjoying it so much that she is already talking about doing further courses.
As well as this, Laura has started going to the gym, swimming and joined ParaFed Canterbury to try out some of the sports that they offer.
Some of Laura’s goals include getting her driver’s licence, having paid work
and moving out of home at some stage. She would also like to go travelling.
Since starting her course at CPIT, Laura appears to have more confidence, is happier and is excited about her future.
