'How to Belong" is a 6-part poem about migration that was inspired by an exhibition at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery titled 'Snapshot Photography and Migrant Women A Tasmanian Experience'.
There are moments of destiny that build like a storm you can't escape. This is my storm. The storm that changed my life.
As an Aboriginal woman who has been denied recognition for most of her life, I feel I have started my healing journey. I can now stand up in that same sense of pride as I see in my Elders and remind myself ‘I am an Aboriginal woman, I am this Country and this Country is me’ – no one can ever take this from me - it is embedded in my soul and my psyche for ever.
