“I want our generation to destroy the stigma placed upon our culture and our people. To encourage them to strive towards their dreams, no matter how big or how small. And keep our beautiful culture alive and thriving. And prove to the world who we truly are as Aboriginal people.”
“When I stand on Country, it gives me a great sense of belonging and ownership. The knowledge that the land I walk on today is the same land that my ancestors and elders walked on feels intrinsically magical and powerful.”
“I come from a long line of strong matriarchs who spent their lives fighting for justice. As a queer Aboriginal woman my life is committed to advocating for equity and fairness and fighting for social justice.”
Crowning for Miss NAIDOC Perth is scheduled for July 17 2021.
