I love the strength and compassion of our community. So for me, the strength inspires me. I see that every day where people gather together and they, you know, come up with local solutions to local issues. They advocate for their community, their neighbour, their family, and they come together to make great things happen in our Valley. They stand together to be counted, and that’s really something that inspires me and it keeps me coming down to work every day.

And the other word I used was compassion and I think for me, that’s how we show our compassion for people and our community. You know, every day I see people working together, they’re looking after their neighbours, they’re checking on their family. You know, if there’s someone in need they rally together to, you know, to ensure that they’re supported and that, you know, they’re not left behind. And I think that is something that is really rare, it’s a rare find to see. And I’m really proud that I’m part of this community.

Noaka – Arabic

 

There are benefits to having a large family, particularly when it comes to adapting to a new home.

Born in Egypt, Noaka moved to Australia with her Sudanese family in 2005 at the age of five.

I’ve lived in the region for most of my life, and I’m proud to have called most of the major centres “home” at one time or another.

Our region has a proud history of contributing to our state, whether it be the electricity we generate, the food we produce or…

I like living in the Latrobe Valley because it allows me to give back to my community and to feel included as part of a community. So presenting myself in the Latrobe Valley has allowed me to give back to my community by participating in active and social events.
