OLIVER Narvas is a high achiever and his aim is to be the best he can be.

"I want to be better at everything I do, it's just my goal," he said.

The 17-year-old is on a job hunt after graduating from high school in 2013.

He has plans to become a boilermaker or something else in the trade industry.

In his spare time, Oliver enjoys basketball, chess and hanging out with his mates.

He is currently doing his learner driver training.

His home town of Gladstone is quite different from the bustling, busy city he is originally from.

"I like it (Gladstone) because it's quiet. I'm from the Philippines, in Manila.

"I came over with my family. I have been in Gladstone for almost five years now."

Oliver participated in the Queensland Open Chess Tournament over the weekend, a hobby he is experienced in.

"I've been playing chess since I was five years old when my uncle gave me a board," he said.
