Hi my name is Rosie Scarlett.

I am 19 years old and I’m studying at TAFE this year. I’m doing a Cert II in kitchen operations so that I can get a job as a sous chef or work at a cafe or restaurant.

I joined the Modified Rugby Program 3 years ago as a player so that I could be involved in a team sport and to increase my social network. I am part of a great team and we have formed friendships outside of MRP. Our mums are also great friends and love getting together as well. Through MRP I have also had the chance to do some work experience in the kitchen at Ruggers Restaurant at the Brothers Rugby Union Club which I really loved.

There are so many families at MRP that are able to play now and not be excluded. It doesn’t matter what level of ability anyone is because all levels are catered for. The mentors are amazing at encouraging everyone to have a go. By allowing all abilities to play sport it changes people’s ideas on what is allowed and what can be achieved. I love playing at MRP because it allows me to meet a lot of new people and be part of a large community.

This year I have been asked to join the mentoring group which is so very awesome.

I LOVE MRP!!”
