I was raised in Brisbane my maternal ancestral connections are to the Johnson family and we are Gooreng Gooreng.

What is your role within the committee?

I am the March organiser

What made you want to get involved in NAIDOC events?

I have always been proud to participate in NAIDOC celebrations with my people. I went to my first event here last year I really enjoyed the positive proud vibe it held. Then through work had the opportunity to be involved and I jumped on it.

How long have you been a member of the NAIDOC committee?

Only come on board late last year

What does NAIDOC mean to you?

NAIDOC is an event that brings pride, joy and unity for myself and my mob. It’s also an opportunity to catch up with family I haven’t seen for a while and it makes me feel culturally strong ☺

Which events are you most looking forward to?

The Ball is a deadly event that we get to celebrate together through music dance and song, also I love the fact we acknowledge people in the community that are positive role models doing great things for our mob.
