Like many others her age, MEGT apprentice Madeline Doukas began her working life while she was still at school. In 2015, she started working part-time in her local Bojangles Pizza Restaurant in Warrnambool, Victoria, taking pizza orders over the phone and eventually working her way into the kitchen.
After finishing Year 12, Maddie began a traineeship with her local council, chasing her dream of becoming a draftsperson. Within a few months, however, she found herself missing the pizza kitchen and decided to take a leap and make a career change.
Maddie returned to Bojangles, and with the support of head chef Simon McLaren, she is now signed up by MEGT to complete her SIT30816 Certificate III in Commercial Cookery.
We wish Maddie all the best with her new career!
