This week, Tangara Old Girl, Jessica Kahawaty (Class of 2006), was honoured by the Australia Lebanon Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ALCCI) and named an 'Outstanding Ambassador to Lebanon and Australia' for her contributions to society.

Jessica managed to take time out from her busy schedule last Wednesday to visit Tangara to speak to the high school girls about her experiences overseas, work with the UN, career paths and how Tangara shaped her to be the person she is today.

Jessica later posted on Instagram; “It was such a pleasure to visit my old school in Australia, Tangara School for Girls, and speak to the bright, humble and ambitious Year 10 and Year 11 Girls. I had goosebumps being there, remembering how I was when I was 17 and what I wanted to hear. Thank you for listening to me.”

Thank you Jessica for your inspiring visit and congratulations on all your achievements! We wish you well in your future endeavours and hope you will return to visit again soon!
