Montana Ah-Won

Apprentice of the Year

Montana Ah-Won is an 18 year old Miriwoong Gajeroong woman from Kununurra in Western Australia’s East Kimberley.

After enduring family tragedy at a young age and leaving school early, Montana set herself on a new direction. She joined a hospitality pre-employment program with Kimberley Group Training.

Excelling in the course, Montana began a traineeship and achieved her Certificate II in Hospitality.

Today, Montana is working as a Receptionist and Administration Officer at the Kununurra Country Club Resort. 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. But she also has her sights firmly set on continuing her studies and gaining business qualifications in the future.

Proving that with resilience, persistence and hard work, tough times can be overcome, Montana is an inspirational role model for other young people.
