Darci Miller

My name is Darci Miller, I am 24 years old and I am passionate about health promotion and educating my peers on important health issues. I grew up in Beverley which is 133km east of Perth on a wheat and sheep farm. I was a boarder at Presbyterian Ladies’ College in Perth and the Boarding House Prefect and Captain of Boats (Rowing).
I still travel to Beverley most weekends to play netball and see my friends and family and be part of a fantastic community. I enjoy living a healthy, active lifestyle getting out and about to find the next adventure – whether it is cooking, crafts, volunteering at community events, nature walks, sports or travelling. I also like spending time with family and friends laughing, smiling, and having a good chat.
I graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 2015, with a Bachelor of Preventive Health with a Specialist in Marketing and won the Bachelor of Preventive Health Industry Practicum Award. In 2016, I received an Australia Health Promotion Association (AHPA) Graduate scholarship to work at Mentally Healthy WA on a program called Youth Connectors. This program involves using a peer-education approach to teach young people about the Act-Belong-Commit principles for good mental health and up-skilling them to be able to assist and encourage peers to engage in mentally healthy activities. I am still working on this program four days a week.
In 2017 I was named the Western Australian National Youth Week Ambassador which was an amazing opportunity and I would highly recommend it to all young people. I was also apart of the 2017 YMCA Youth Parliament, both of these roles have further developed my passion for creating a voice for young people.
I love being part of the Yep Crew as it is an amazing team and work place that incorporate all of the things I love.
