Bareetu’s mentee journey starts with her mum and a math teacher. “My mum came to Australia from Ethiopia about five years before she had me. She's made a lot of sacrifices to make sure that my sister and I have been able to focus on our education. I think that my mum’s passion for education came from my grandmother (her mum). Even though my grandfather passed away when my mum was young, my grandmother ensured that my mum finished Year 12 so that she would have more options in life. So my family has always understood and valued the importance of education."
“When I was in Year 9/10 Maths, I had a teacher named Ms. Wiley. She was such a boss and came into the classroom and delivered such engaging lessons. In her classes, no math problem was ever too difficult to solve. She would make you stop,think and come up with a plan. She was always there to support you. Ms. Wiley made me feel like I could solve anything - and that applied to life too! Between my mum and Ms. Wiley, I think that's why I appreciate PwC Assurance’s strong focus on development, growth, and learning.”
