Kurtis Makuru

My name is Kurtis Makuru. I am a proud Wilman Minang Noongar. My family are survivors of the Stolen Generation. I grew up in my ancestral Kinjarling country and now live in Whadjuk country.

After completing my Bachelor of Psychology at Curtin University., I plan on studying a master’s in counselling psychology. As an Indigenous person, I have personal experience of homelessness and mental health struggles. I aspire to help my mob as my mob has helped me. I want to address and combat the immense trauma Indigenous people face specifically to create better outcomes for our youth.
