Cruz Reys

Hi my name is Cruz Tomeito Christian Reys but I like to be called Cruz. I’m originally from the Cairns area and have spent most of my earlier schools years in the Cairns region. I was originally involved with the Cape York Institute for policy and Leadership before I was referred to the Indigenous Youth Mobility Program. The Cape York program was a stepping stone to furthering my educational requirements. The Tertiary Student Coordinator recommended that I seriously consider the IYMP program as it provided aspects that could further my academic education and provide a life experience that I had not witnessed before.
So I did some asking around, and it felt right with the IYMP, as the program suited my needs, knowing that staff was always going to support me through this new experience.
So in early January I started University at James Cook University, studying a Bachelor of Sport and Exercise Science. This course has opened up my eyes to the endless possibilities after I’ve completed this degree. At the same time I joined the IYMP program in Townsville, I started my new experience in living in an independent living environment. Having my own space and accommodation is new and different but feels good. At first it was difficult but with the great staff on hand I was able to learn and achieve skills I’ve never before confronted.
