Anne grew up in Broome, in northwest Australia, one of the few places where the White Australia Policy didn't apply.
Anne’s father came to Broome from West Timor as a pearl diver, and fell in love with her mother at first sight.
Their family was a part of Broome’s unique community: a mix of Aboriginal, Chinese, Japanese and European people, cultures, and ways of cooking.
Anne was introduced to her country, from her mother’s side of the family, and given ancient stories that connect the Kimberley to central Australia
She is now the Managing Director of the Indigenous not-for-profit organisation Madjulla, based in Broome.
