I work at the Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation in the sexual health and blood borne viruses team. I previously worked in Redfern with people who inject drugs as an outreach worker at the Redfern Needle Syringe Program.
"I am a Hep Hero because I refuse to be ashamed about having injected drugs and having hepatitis C."
"I am a Hep Hero because everyone deserves to be treated with respect and receive the care that they need.”
"I am a Hep Hero because I am passionate about identifying and treating all”
"I am a hepatitis hero because I am inspired by the extraordinary HepHero team, and I want to be part of it, joining the action to make a difference for people living with viral hepatitis."

I wanted to become a Hep Hero because I'm capable and confident to speak out. Therefore I feel I can help speak out for those who can't do so - who don't feel they have a voice.
I am a Hep Hero because I think that reducing stigma and discrimination against people with chronic illnesses such as viral hepatitis is essential in creating a happier and healthier community.
“I am a Hep Hero because there is an urgent need to raise awareness of hepatitis and its enormous impact on diverse communities in our multicultural society.”
Ethnic Communities Council, People of Australia Ambassador, Order of Australia. I am a Hep Hero because I am concerned about the lack of awareness and information available for our migrant communities.
