February 2019 Dinner Meeting

Previous Event
Date: Tuesday, 5 February 2019
Venue: Grand Ballroom, Novotel Wollongong North Beach
Speaker: Tori Nikolaou- Pilot and Role Model

Tori Athanasia Nikolaou may be young, but she has achieved a lot more in her lifetime to date than many people ever will.

Wollongong born, Tori and her family lived in Greece for several years, following her father’s career as a pilot, before returning to Brisbane in 2004. Tori always wanted to follow in her father’s footsteps and “fly big jets”.

Tori didn’t let health issues, multiple surgeries or being a young woman of Indigenous and Greek heritage stop her from achieving her dream and in 2017 she was accredited as one of Australia’s first female Indigenous commercial pilots.

Join us as we hear Tori’s story, how she is inspiring other young Indigenous women and men, and her plans for the future.
