CONNECTING TO COUNTRY

To Breanna, the theme of Naidoc 2020 means connecting back to Country and connecting with her mob:
 
"Something that I struggle with is ‘walking in two worlds’, I feel like I am always dragged in different directions by my professional career and by my culture. At times this can be overwhelming, but I always feel grounded and connected when I put my feet in the dirt and breathe in the fresh air."
