Kaya, I would like to pay my respects to all my elders, past, present and those emerging.
My name is Kiahara Jacobs Hampton; I’m 22 years old and a proud Noongar and Koori woman. My mob is Ballardong, Geawegal, and Wanaruah. I have recently joined FISH and I’m proud to be part of a passionate team who strive for greatness. I’m grateful to be on this journey and meet new knowledgeable people to support my future career, not only with FISH but also as an educator. Currently, I am studying a Bachelor of Primary Education at Curtin University .
The sole purpose of taking this path is to become the first Aboriginal teacher in my family. I believe that education, particularly around Aboriginal culture, will be the key driver for change in our communities and a fundamental component to the empowerment of our youth at a primary school level. I can’t wait to grow, create and learn new memories with the FISH family.
