On RISE Day, Luca Gnezda, Director of community youth organisation Head Full of Heart and SA advisory firm, Taptu IT attended the RISE SA office and spoke to Adelaide-based young person Stuart.

“Over the course of 90 minutes or so [on RISE Day] I did a video conference [with Stuart] and showed him where to start his programming journey and taught him some of the basics. I then said that he’s welcome to reach out and get in contact in a couple of months if he wants to chat about it further. The next day his mum actually reached out and said how excited Stuart was and how he now wants to code everything.”
