What’s it like to be the first in your family or the first in your community to study at university? Kara gathers stories from students who are in that position. Many of the students are Aboriginal.
Kara reflects on what she is learning from listening to these incredibly resilient students about injustice and their desire to help their communities heal from the damage done by colonisation.
“I think the more I listen… the more I realise I have no concept or understanding, not just about Aboriginal culture and Aboriginal history and Australian history, but about everything. The more I learn, the more I realise I know nothing.”
“What you can do is really ensure that the time that you’ve got, you live well and you live with purpose and you live with respect.”
