A look into our past, present and future
This month's publication offers a look back to just before the turn of the millennium. Ben van Poppel grew up in the tiny town of Glengarry in Gippsland,
where he completed his VCE over 3 years in nearby Traralgon. He hosted Christian Weber from Berlin through SAGSE. As Christian thus became accustomed
to living with a blind person, he then offered to host Ben, when he was subsequently offered a scholarship.
Ben is pictured, on the left, with fellow stipi Louisa Willoughby, about to depart Germany to return to Australia, and, on the right, with son Max.
