Youth Governor of Victoria talks gap years with Tom Elliott

Lots of students take gap years. But are they good for you?

Amanda Gailiss, Youth Governor of Victoria, thinks so. 

She told Tom Elliott she took a gap year between the end of university and start of work.  

‘I think any travel you do when you are young, can really impact your life in a positive way, I would highly recommend it’ she said. 

Ms Gailiss said quite a few of her friends took a gap year. 

Caller Debbie says she took a gap year in 1971 because she wanted to study but felt too young to do it. 

Instead, she went to a kibbutz in Israel.
