between the runner on the choices you know… you
There should be a career choice, not just my graduate career,

When I was very very young, my father had a cleaning store
and after school, in the afternoon, when I was thirteen and fourteen years of age
I delivered laundry and cleaning into the buildings
where he had customers and clients, and I learned certain responsibilities so you know
and it was ok to be really tired and just push yourself
to be able to deliver what you need to do.

I actually found my first job overseas,
so I didn’t look for a position within Australia.
