Now at age 20 Ms Prakash is not letting illness hold her back and is taking part in a transition to work program.

Ms Prakash, who lives in Gregory Hills, has worked for Werriwa MP Laurie Ferguson over the past six weeks doing data entry and other work.

“It’s been a great experience and I’m enjoying learning all about politics and the important role administration plays in bringing it all together,” Ms Prakash said. “I’ve had lots of discussions with staff members about topics ranging from welfare changes to Medicare.”

She also travelled to Canberra to gain an insight into the politician’s work.

Bipolar disorder is often diagnosed in people who experience extreme mood swings that can last hours or days.

The Northcott Transition to Work program helps school leavers with a disability gain skills that will enable them to find and keep a job.

Mr Ferguson said he invited Ms Prakash to do work experience because he saw it as an opportunity to build confidence and experience a work environment.

“There’s a lot of stereotypes and misunderstanding in the community about disability,” Mr Ferguson said.

“Many employers often think because people have a disability that they have only limitations when there are a lot of things they can do.”
