ZEAL & Jurassic Penguin has meant everything to me, its been the crossroads in my life.  The staff have been really encouraging and they challenge me to think.  I left school in Yr 12 and had no focus, now I am applying for a Bachelor in Social Practice, I’m finding my place in the world and what I want to do.
