She also added:

” I love hunting, looking for oysters and fishing and looking for mangrove worms and dancing traditional, we call it bunggul, that’s what I miss, and telling stories around the campfire.”

” I speak three Indigenous languages.”

” Going to a boarding school like this, I learnt new Indigenous languages and cultures from different communities as well.”

Sasha hopes to finish year 11 and 12 at the Clontarf Aboriginal College. She also dreamed to work as a nurse someday.

” I would still love to practice culture and teach people my culture. I also want to be role model to younger girls and show them that they can do something with their lives and be happy.”
