Meet Shakira!

My mining journey started 9 years ago when I began a traineeship at Worsley Alumina. At such a young age and not the best life space I only lasted a year as I was not enjoying it at all so I resigned. 8 years on, 7 years of retail work, 2 beautiful babies, a very difficult marriage, nasty divorce and an epic custody battle, easily the hardest years of my life, I decided it was time for me to do something for myself. My Father who has been working at Solomon for 7 years handed my resume out and I was lucky enough to be given a chance. In the one year I have been here I have achieved so much. I started as a contractor and after 3 months I had my shirt. In the other 9 months I have had a promotion, a pay rise and 2 other job offers to move within the company.
There have been some massive struggles including more custody issues due to my roster and being away from my babies is definitely the most difficult part, this also wouldn’t be possible without my incredible Mother who does so much for me and my babies while I am away. But the best thing in the whole entire world is knowing that I am making a future, providing for and setting an example for my children. I am doing this for them. It’s just an added bonus that I absolutely love it. Being able to work with my Dad has been amazing, I’ve also been lucky enough to meet the love of my life and some of the best people I’ve ever met.
