Lights Out - Former St Patrick’s College boarder, Maya Johnson, inspired by Bond University

Former St Patrick’s College Townsville boarder, Maya Johnson, was inspired by Bond (University)’s Indigenous spirit.

In 2015, her Principal, Paulina Skerman, travelled to the Torres Strait Islands as part of Bond's award-winning outreach program, Yarning Up. A few months later, Ms Skerman brought Maya and a small group of her classmates down to the Gold Coast to attend the Bond University Indigenous Gala.

"It was totally amazing," said Maya, who grew up on magnetic Island where her family are the traditional owners...

Maya is now in her second year of a Journalism degree and hopes to continue her studies with a Master of International Relations.
