At age six Zion left with his family for Australia. It went well for Zion until he started to associate with people
who were involved in petty crime. Eventually Zion was caught and incarcerated. Then the Australian Government
decided that it was best that Zion was to leave Australia. Zion was to be deported. To do this Zion spent one year in
detention centre and then was escorted back to New Zealand. When we met Zion he was at rock bottom with little
in the way of family in Auckland, few friends and some frustration about his treatment.
We took Zion into the course and immediately set about building goals, creating confidence and
building self-esteem. Eventually the real Zion began to emerge and the natural talent for
customer service started to surface.
After some big changes Zion gained employment in hospitality. Zion is now a new person and has left his Australian
history far behind. He is a new man and his employer considers him to be a cornerstone employee.
