Sophia was born and raised on Djandak in Bendigo and continues her Indigenous heritage journey to locate her mob stemming from her great great grandmother who was born on Djandak in the 1850s.

Sophia’s position at Djaara allows her to focus on advocating for the protection and management of tangible and intangible cultural heritage, securing cultural heritage for current and future generations.
