How will I contribute to improving Indigenous health as a qualified medical practitioner or health worker?
While I am not studying in the physical health field, I am studying in the emotional health, mental health and social health field as a social worker. Once I have finished my degree I want to be able to build therapeutic relationships with my people. I want to be able to advocate and stand n the void for all Indigenous people and families that feel they are not being heard.
I want to be able to work with individuals and families to assist in identifying the environmental factors that may be impacting or hindering their life and work with them about bringing about change. I want to be able to empower, teach, support, work with, walk with and learn from all Indigenous communities. i would also like to be able to be a role model for all Indigenous people, that no matter your up bringing, your background or circumstances you can do anything you put your mind to, that you are not alone and you can do this. I believe in doing this I will be able to have a positive impact on the improvement in health and wellbeing for Indigenous people.
