Jodi is our first The Westerman Jilya Institute for Indigenous Mental Health scholarship recipient to complete her Psychology degree, and the first Aboriginal Psychology graduate from Tasmania!
“I am a Palawa woman (Tasmanian Aboriginal) proud descendent of Fanny Cochrane Smith, originating from Flinders Island. I am passionate about social justice and ensuring that our Indigenous people have a voice, are listened to and are heard.
Without the Dr Tracy Westerman Jilya scholarship and your ongoing support, my dream would not have been possible! I am proud and honoured to be part of the #BuildAnArmy team. Thank you for paving the way for all of our people!”
This is Indigenous self-determination in action. It is about Australia coming together to say that our communities deserve what every Australian has a basic right to – access to critical and essential services best delivered by Indigenous people, for Indigenous people.
Join us in helping to #BuildAnArmy of Indigenous psychologists.
