I’m a 25 y/o, non indigenous woman currently living in Brisbane, QLD. I was born and raised in Orange NSW and briefly lived in Broken Hill for a few years. I am currently employed by QLD Department of Education and working at a primary school (redacted) 5 days a week, 2days working in administration and 3 days as a teachers aide. I have just finished studying my Cert 4 Education Support course through Tafe and previously have completed some beauty courses through Tafe also.

Why do you think the Uluru Statement from the Heart is important?
It calls for structural reform including constitutional change!

Why do you think it's important to enshrine the Voice to Parliament in the Constitution, rather than include it only in legislation?
So that the Voice itself is guaranteed in the constitution!

How could a Voice to Parliament improve the lives of your community?
To be able to speak up and and have a voice for the wider community and possibly having a step closer to something being done

Why is it important for Indigenous people to have a say in the matters that affect them?
So that First Nation people have more to say over what impacts them and their rights. Having the power to have something that can positively impact these people.

Thank you
