NRLW Star Evelyn Horomia Inspires On International Womens Day


    To celebrate International Women’s Day, the Cumberland Council in Sydney’s western suburbs wanted to give young kids at a local school the opportunity to learn and be inspired by trailblazing women at the top of her game.

    With that in mind the council approached Pickstar, outlining what they were looking for, what the budget was, and the timeline for events on the day. With Pickstar's assistance, Cumberland Council then shortlisted sports stars from the more than 1200 on PickStar's marketplace, before offers were sent out for the athletes to consider.

    NRLW and Wallaroos star Evelyn Horomia was selected to motivate and inspire the next generation of sporting boys and girls from Hilltop Road Primary School whilst teaching them basic rugby skills.


      Evelyn shared her story of success with the students, focusing on what she had to do to achieve her sporting goals, before opening up in a Q&A session. She spent more than an hour with the kids teaching them everything from tackling to different passing techniques. Evelyn then posed for photos with staff and students to make their experience a memorable one.

      The event was a major success, getting the kids involved in a skills clinic, while also celebrating International Women’s Day.

      The Cumberland Council was happy with both their experience using Pickstar and Evelyn's professionalism and easy-going nature.
