I grew up on Awabakal land. I am currently residing on Yagera and Turrbal country. I pay my respects to the traditional custodians of my homeland, about whom I am still learning. I pay my respects to the land that nurtured me, and the land upon which I currently reside. I also pay my respects to elders past, present and future.
