I would tell myself to hold my head up high, keep focused on my goals and not get caught up in things that could affect my future in a negative sense.

What is your favourite memory from school?

My favourite memory from school is being the head of the NAIDOC committee and being able to introduce NAIDOC to all the non-Indigenous girls at my school and educate them on my culture and identity.

Looking back, what would you tell your younger self about going to school?

When I reflect / look back on my start in secondary schooling, I would tell myself to hold my head up high, keep focused on my goals and not get caught up in things that could affect my future in a negative sense.

What do you think is the most important thing we can teach future generations?

The most important thing you can teach another person is acceptance, because acceptance of other ethnicities and cultural beliefs is the key to a better future for generations to come.
