SISTER ALISON BUSH MEDAL FOR CONTRIBUTION TO THE INDIGENOUS COMMUNITY
I am thrilled to be the 2020 recipient of the Sister Alison Bush Medal from the University of Sydney.
I completed my PhD in 2018 and graduated from the University of Sydney at the end of last year, and it was a vey nice surprise to receive this award, particularly during this time.
I had the absolute honour of knowing Sister Alison Bush when she assisted me with my last child.
