“Cally Hannah.

Wow that an awesome (yok) woman…

You told me that you had this …. and you delivered it…

As a Nyungar yok myself and an Aborignal English speaker you did your own research…That’s called commitment!

I couldn’t have asked for a better person to be sitting by my side..

Good job Cally Hannah.”
