Don’t change, unless you want to.
Hernan’s life happily revolves around his part-time job, his family and his music – and AustralianSuper will make sure it stays that way.
My sister who came here in 1976 went to Chile to visit us. And she asked everyone, "Who wants to go to live in Australia?" And I said to my sister, "Yeah, I would like to go. The opportunities that the children can have in Australia will be better than Chile."....
When I was in Chile, I never had the opportunity to join a band, a group. But when I came here, one day, my friend he offered to me, "Hernan, you have a good voice. Do you want to join us?" I started with them singing the music from Chile.
In Spanish, the group name is Campo Lindo, Beautiful Country. One day I went to visit my best friend, Bernardo. He was working in a petrol station. And he said, "You need to work here." And since then until 2012, 22 years, working as a console operator.
In some petrol stations, they have contract with different Super. When I have the opportunity to have a choice, and I said, "No, you are no good. Hasta la vista baby." I moved to AustralianSuper. First, the fees were less than the other companies. If I'm called into an adviser, he or she will give me a lot of information. I'm just here for service, and this is the main reason why I'm with AustralianSuper.
I came here; I gave to my children a good education. They went to university. They have a very good job. Now, I'm waiting to be a grandfather, but they are a little bit lazy. I'm a musician. I'm an actor now. I'm singing. I pay my house. What more I want to do? Enjoy the life.
