My name is Georgia Mae Capocchi-Hunter and I am a proud Wurundjeri, Ngurai Illum Wurrung and Italian Woman.
I’ve grown up in Naarm my whole life and have always been connected to my community and culture.
I am a dancer with my family dance group, the Djirri Djirri’s, and together we have danced at many events from Dreamtime matches to local community events.
I currently work at VACCA as admin for their project team as well as helping out as a content writer for Deadly Story – a cultural resource portal that aims to help kids in care connect to country, culture and community.
I am also an executive member of the Koorie Youth Council where myself and the other execs advocate on behalf of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people to the government to ensure our voices are being heard.
I am passionate about human rights especially rights of Indigenous people around the world and children and I hope to use my writing to educate readers and bring attention to issues that are being hidden from us.
