CUSTODIAL CORRECTIONAL OFFICER,
Custodial Correctional Officer, Tiffany Cameron joined QCS because she was looking for a fast paced and challenging career. Now she is challenging herself further by attempting to break a world record by pulling a 10 tonne cargo aircraft by the end of the year for Mates4Mates.
Tiffany’s keen attitude toward setting personal goals initiated as an Australian Air Force cadet when she was younger. “I fell in love with flying an aircraft, and formed a huge admiration for the Air Force,” she says.
Her current mission involves an attempt to raise $5,000 for the worthwhile cause in an endeavour to put the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in the spotlight.
“I really wanted to help Mates4Mates as my father works closely with them through the
Returned & Services League of Australia (RSL). I have seen the good they do in assisting men and women who have served in the Australian Defence Force and I have also seen the impact of PTSD in family and friends.
“I thought to myself, I’m pretty strong – Why don’t I put that to good use and try to raise money for those who have been so brave and strong serving in the Australian Defence Force?
“I thought pulling an aircraft would be very symbolic of my cause, with my passion for aviation and respect for the military, as well as my endeavour to help people in need. I thought, let’s do something crazy and huge and ridiculous to try and get a big message across.
“PTSD and depression are not only suffered by those in the military, but it is an issue that is very close to home for a lot of us. We probably all know of someone affected by it. But you are never alone and there is always help,” says Tiffany.
