WEST Coast Fever netballer Josie Janz-Dawson shared her career highs and lows with Indigenous students at the Future Footprints Expo at UWA on Monday.

Janz-Dawson, who was raised in Derby, received a scholarship to Presbyterian Ladies’ College and attended the Australian Institute of Sport before earning a spot on WA’s premier netball team.

She now manages the Wirrpanda Foundation’s Deadly Sista Girlz program mentoring Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women.

Janz-Dawson joined current university students on the panel who shared their experiences with more than 200 Indigenous high school students.

The Expo is organised by the Association of Independent Schools of Western Australia.
