I live on Wonnarua Land and work in a vibrant Catholic School Community. I have studied Early Childhood Education and Teaching on Awabakal land. I am mob, but my Grandma was part of the stolen generation and my family are extremely disconnected from culture and family

Why do you think the Uluru Statement from the Heart is important?
It is a voice for the voiceless who exist in such an intense minority as a result of European settlement and governmental decisions and insensitivities for too long.

How could a Voice to Parliament improve the lives of your community?
By sharing information and knowledge with all- particularly students and the broader school community

Why do you think it's important to enshrine the Voice to Parliament in the Constitution, rather than include it only in legislation?
So it isn't a tokenistic gag order that is disregarded in the future

Why is it important for Indigenous people to have a say in the matters that affect them?
So they are empowered to make a change representative of their own interests and beliefs

Get it sorted and bring our relationship and respect for mob to where it should be in 2021 and beyond.

Kind regards
