"I want all communities to have better health and education"

Who or what inspires you?

My Mother inspires me because she always believes hard work gets you somewhere, no matter how mundane or draining the task can be. She also taught me the importance of family and wanting equality for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People.

What do you want for your community?

I want all communities to have better health and education. I hope in the not so distant future we see that gap closed.

How will you be celebrating National Reconciliation Week this year?

I'll celebrate NRW by wearing my Recognise T-Shirt and inviting everyone I meet to come celebrate it with me!
