Close The Gap Day

Happy 'Close The Gap' Day!

Today marks another year of the Australian nation creating equality and peace among all Australians with their CTG implementation. I believe that CTG is beneficial but it needs to be operating at much higher capacities as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people do have the worst health conditions in the world.




Unfortunately, I will be at uni all day therefore I won't be able to make it to a CTG celebration in my local area. Darn!



I hope everyone enjoys this day, which is a mark in Australian history and justice.

Because of Her, We Can: A NAIDOC 2018 Reflection

BECAUSE OF HER, WE CAN! Today is the beginning of NAIDOC Week for 2018. The theme thisvyear, "Because of her, we can!" is one that shines a light on the beauty, strength and grace of our women. As Aboriginal people, we always know the power that our women have and their significance they have always had for our lives and the role they continue to play. The NAIDOC Committee also understand that Sadly, Aboriginal women’s role in our cultural, social andpolitical survival has often been invisible, unsung or diminished. For at least 65,000 years, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have carried our dreaming stories, song lines, languages and knowledge that have kept our culture strong and enriched us as the oldest continuing culture on the planet. For me, I was born blessed into a family that was characterised with the leadership of women. My Nan and my best friend, Maureen Smith and her sister Fay Brown, led our family to uphold and pass down the values tha

Mutya Keisha Siobhan

The Sacred Three (L-R): Siobhan Donaghy, Mutya Buena & Keisha Buchanan It’s been a while since I have written a blog post, or even looked at my blog for that matter. What made me decide to re-visit writing again was my first love of music; Mutya Keisha Siobhan . If you’re reading this from either my Facebook or Twitter – you would know that I at least talk about this trio every week about how incredible/talented/beautiful they are. Well I wanted to write down my personal thoughts about them, which will hopefully answer some ambiguity around why I like them so much. Fresh Faced in 2000 as 'Sugababes' I have been a fan of Mutya, Keisha and Siobhan since I was eight years old in 2000, a time when they were establishing their careers under the name of Sugababes to which these girls brought about critical/credible acclaim, international success and securing the legacy for forever being known as; the original Sugababes. Considering the lack of access to mu

MUSIC REVIEW: The Sapphires

SAPPHIRES SOUNDTRACK: AN AUSSIE GEM When holding The Sapphires: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack in my hands tonight I felt a surge of pure Motown energy, this being from all the bits and pieces of previews of this upcoming Australian movie which boasts an exquisite array of home-grown talent. The Soundtrack, completely delivers in the same fashion.   The album has Australian pop sweetheart Jessica Mauboy leading 7 of the 16 tracks, which includes her new single 'Gotcha', which is just a taster of the classic, smooth sounds of 'The Sapphires'.  If Miss Mauboy wasn't enough talent on one CD, try adding classic R&B legends Sam & Dave with the sassy trio, The Emotions with a twist of rock from Creedence Clearwater Revival completed with more wholesome Australian talent from Lou Bennett, Juanita Tippens, Jade Macrae and talent show 'The Voice''s favourite, Darren Pericival. If you're not impressed, you're on the wrong page!
