Kununurra young apprentice of the year, Western Australia

Female Indigenous youth holding her 2016 National NAIDOC Award


Montana AhWon is an 18-year old Miriwoong Gajeroong woman from Kununurra in East Kimberley and winner of the 2016 NAIDOC Apprentice of the Year.

After leaving school early, Montana realised she needed some training to open up opportunities for her future.

Montana started with a hospitality pre-employment course offered by Kimberley Group Training, a Vocational Training and Employment Centre provider, and after excelling in that, she completed a Certificate II in Hospitality.

Montana is now working for Wunan House Bed and Breakfast, where she has a well-deserved reputation for dedication and professionalism.

Passionate about her career, Montana is keen to soak up as much experience in the hospitality industry as she can. She also has her sights firmly set on continuing her studies and gaining business qualifications in the future.
