“Whether you’re getting that job, getting that degree or passing that exam – if you have self-belief, courage and confidence, YOU are the difference to achieving your dreams”

In 2018 when Johnathan Thurston received the award of Queensland Australian of the Year, he sent an inspirational message of self-belief. This year Johnathan launched the JT Academy with the vision of taking this message further to enable people to get on the path to success in education, healthy living,employment and sport. The message Johnathan would like to share is: whether you’re getting that job, getting that degree or passing that exam – if you have self-belief, courage and confidence, YOU are the difference to achieving your dreams.
