It’s safe to say that Jackson has a very interesting story. Having been severely injured from a footballing incident during high school, Jacko’s life was flipped on its head. This was no hinderance to his drive, passion and determination. Overcoming his adversity, Jacko has gone on to change many lives by staying true to the incredible person that he is.
Jackson attended SEQ ASLC in 2013 and spent 18 months working for yLead on our IMPACT team, and as always, we LOVED seeing him back in his element at both SEQ and NQ ASLC this year!
What was your biggest takeaway from ASLC in 2005?
My biggest takeaway from ASLC back in 2013 was the confidence that I developed to take on new opportunities, and I loved every minute of the guest speakers and workshops that yLead delivered.
What are you doing now?
These days I run my own business as a cattle farmer and firewood producer. In the previous few years I have worked at yLead and volunteered at DANdalion Friends, creating a movement to shift the world DISability to DIFFability.
