Katherine Sleiman

@ Year13

Kat is a 21-year-old Lebanese-Australian who grew up in Tamworth NSW. Kat relocated to Wollongong in 2018 to study a Bachelor of Communications and Media (Dean’s Scholar) with a double major in Global Screen Media and Marketing Communications and Advertising. 

Kat is an extremely driven, resilient young woman with maturity beyond her years and a deep passion for social justice. She brings to The Truth Project experience facilitating large groups through her work as a student Marketing and Digital Media Ambassador for the University of Wollongong as well as an inspiring story about overcoming the devastating mental health impacts of experiencing racism during her teen years. 

In the short time Kat has been delivering The Truth Project, she has had three teenage girls at different schools personally thank her for sharing her personal story and has been asked by a Career Advisor to sit down with one particular student who had been experiencing similar personal difficulties (not sure if you want to send this last line).
