People are the most important resource for FISH and everyone is as important as the other. Together we form part of the whole of FISH and together we work to make a difference in bringing about positive long term sustainable change in the lives of individuals, families, communities, Australia and the world.
Education and Cultural Officer
Kaisha is a Noongar and Wongi Woman, who was born in Perth and grew up between and Whyalla, South Australia, where she calls home. Kaisha moved back to Perth in 2014 and commenced study in Indigenous Community Management and Development (Bachelor of Applied Science) at Curtin University in 2017. Kaisha is employed with FISH as a Programs Intern and is interested in the chance to better the conditions for Aboriginal Australia in regards to life opportunity and outcomes, particularly for young people and children. From the perspective of her own lived experience, Kaisha believes firmly in supporting the development of the role of families and particularly mothers to encourage responsibility and life potential for the next generation. FISH has supported Kaisha to develop her cultural understanding and grounding, an opportunity that she recognises that not many Aboriginal (and non-Aboriginal young people) are offered, and therefore she feels very grateful and appreciative. Kaisha believes that FISH doesn’t provide a band aid solution, that this work is only the beginning, and that she is lucky to be a part of that journey.
