Where you’re from and where you live now?
Originally from Walgett (Gamilaraay), living in Sydney (Gadigal).
Qualifications and work history:
Currently studying a Bachelor of Primary Education, along with a Cert. IV in Fitness. My working background is working with children, either in schools, after school care or coaching junior rugby league.
Why you are working with Blackfit:
I am working with Blackfit to not only better myself, but to better those around me - in particular my Indigenous people. I am working with Blackfit to educate our youth on the importance of healthy living and a healthy lifestyle. I am working with Blackfit to show appreciation of fitness and healthy eating.
Your visions for Blackfit:
My visions for Blackfit are to extend and educate the knowledge of healthy living, in hopes to close the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.
My health journey and what is health to me:
Growing up I was a healthy child and adolescent, until I reach the legal age of drinking. For at least two or three years I was out drinking/smoking almost every weekend, sometimes from Friday to Sunday. Through education of healthy living and a healthy lifestyle I have stopped binge drinking, and now have a healthy balance. Looking at the history of my family’s health has led me in a different direction with my diet; I am now a vegan
