Know Me As I Want to Know You
“Your heart is like a good soil, and when you gather information and plant it into the soil of your heart – now we can see results… It’s more gathering through your studies, your education, then putting it in your soil no matter who you are.” Djaparri cares deeply about culture and country where the scaredness of the land and stories have come down through the bloodline of her family.
Djaparri will share her journey embracing ‘two worlds’ that has enabled her to take up her leadership with a deeply passionate focus on education for future generations. Self learning since she was a girl, now is the right time to share the wisdom of Yolngu elders, bringing together ‘the hands of two cultures’ through education.
Djaparri’s experience in tranversing Yolngu and modern day Australian culture is heart warming and full of jewels that are based in thousands of years care of country and heritage. ‘Know me as I want to know you” is real Australian leadership where learning is forever and engaging with young Australians for a bright future.
