I am grateful for the deadly women in my life...
2: MY SISTER: My little sis, Gisella, is a deadly cook and she only lives 2km away, enough said. (Pic below of Gis and I at the Deadlys this year)
3. CATE WALLACE: Cate works with Mum at the Aboriginal Catholic Ministry at La Perouse. She is Mum’s right-hand woman or Girl Friday (everyday!). In the role Cate plays, she is a major cog in the wheels of Mum’s professional life. Cate came along to the Mum’s graduation (see pic below) I’m also grateful Cate types up all Mum’s speeches (saves me doing them!).
4. BELINDA DUARTE: I’m grateful I’m on the board of the National Aboriginal Sporting Chance Academy for many reasons, one of them is having the opportunity to work alongside Belinda Duarte. Belinda is a Wotjobaluk woman born and raised in Ballarat, and is currently the National Project Manager for the Indigenous Employment Program with AFL SportsReady. She’s a qualified teacher, a former elite athlete and an ambassador for the State Government's Go for Your Life initiative, as well as a Member of the Board of Governance for VicHealth and the Indigenous Leadership Network, Victoria. As the Chair of NASCA she’s professional, efficient and inspiring. As a women, she’s just too deadly and gorgeous. [Pic below of Belinda and I]
5. OZ CO GIRLS: It’s seven years since I left my job as Communications Advisor for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Arts Board (Australia Council), but I still keep in contact with the deadly women I used to work with there. I’m grateful for their continued and unconditional friendship, and for the time they took to have some Christmas cocktails recently. In the pics below are feature my tiddas; Michelle W, Michelle H, Lauren and Fleur. Merry Christmas ladies!
