Born and bred in Gordonvale a small country town 20km south of Cairns. Spent most of my childhood fishing, riding my bike through cane fields, playing with kids in the neighbourhood and watching my brothers football team on Saturdays.

I am a proud Papua New Guinea woman with Dutch and Australian roots, I come from a huge family and put my family above all.
