“Our young women hold the potential to change the future of
our nation for the better, for all
of us who live here.”
- Marlee Silva
Marlee Silva established the Instagram page, Tiddas 4 Tiddas, elevating the voices of Indigenous
Australian women and girls. Their stories are positive, powerful and inspiring to many young
females, helping them understand their worth and realise their potential.
“Although we have come far, we [Aboriginal and Torres Straight
Islander people] are still grossly over-represented in negative statistics throughout the country…
my firm belief that our young women hold the power to change the future…”
Marlee strives to hold empowerment workshops in schools across Australia, giving young women the
opportunity to express themselves, feel their power and know their worth.
The $10,000 grant will cover the development of dynamic video content for the program, in promotion
schools across the country.
The content will include inspiring conversations with Indigenous female role models. Funds will also
help support Marlee and an Indigenous sister in the logistics of holding these workshops.
