Rahel Boon

My name is Rahel Boon. I am a proud Wiradjuri woman with strong community ties to Wilyakali country and people.

I am a passionate advocate for Indigenous health promotion. I think that a strong mind is vital when it comes to holistic health and wellbeing.

The scholarship will assist me in my journey to make a difference in Indigenous mental health in Australia. I have always enjoyed Dr Tracy’s teaching so it will be amazing to work under her wing. As a scholarship recipient, I am also excited to be a part of a wider network of other likeminded people.

My dream is to create a safe healing space for women and children from CALD backgrounds in my hometown in Far West NSW.
