I’m so proud: June McGrath

Born in 1931, Auntie June McGrath grew up in Bexley. She always felt something was missing, but it was only many years later than she discovered through much research that her grandmother, who described herself as a Maori princess, was Aboriginal. Now Auntie June lives with many questions about her cultural background, but feels proud. She was chairperson of Link-Up in 2010.
