Multicultural Worker
Multicultural Worker

Stella migrated from Uruguay 25 years ago with husband Horacio and four children. After 30.000 kms travelling around Australia they settled in the Sunshine Coast.

The day her youngest daughter finished high school; Stella decided to get tertiary qualifications. She finished a Social Work degree at the University of the Sunshine Coast in 2010 focusing her studies in Cultural Diversity and History of Migrations.

Stella has been working as a Multicultural Worker for Caloundra Community Centre since 2016 and now she is based at Baringa Community Centre working for both centres. She is passionate about cultural diversity and how culture shapes us as human beings. Her main role is providing information, assistance and support to individuals, families and communities who frequently do not access mainstream services due to their migrant visa’s status. Also, she provides education to the mainstream community about challenges that migrants face in their journey of settlement and integration.

Stella loves to be surrounded by people having interesting conversations, particularly with her six grandchildren who range from 12 to two. Stella loves knitting, swimming at the beach, movies and event planning. She has had the same partner for 48 years, they survived together their children’s teenage years and the challenges of migration. These are her most impressive achievements!
