At one point, rugby league or concreting were the likely career options before Giovanni Rapana. But despite his talent on the footy field and the stability of a family business, he knew he could accomplish more. In 2017 he completed his civil engineering degree, all while working full time with a young family at home. 'I finished high school and was labouring for a number of years, but I realised really quickly that I didn't want to do that for the rest of my life.' As part of his degree, Giovanni completed a work placement in India where his construction management skills came to the fore. His construction and engineering background has led him to his role as a Senior Project Manager at the City of Gold Coast, where he works on several coastal infrastructure projects.
