27 year old Gumbaynggirr person, Lilly Brown has returned from Cambridge University as a Australia’s first Aboriginal graduate from the prestigious university, but Ms Brown has returned with the knowledge that the racism she has faced in Australia is not limited to our borders.

Growing up in Western Australia, and now touted as an up and coming voice in unravelling in racism and in unfolding social justice, Ms Brown that she did not expect to encounter many of the racist attitudes she grew up with in Perth at Cambridge University and in the United Kingdom. She enjoyed the learning experience, her Masters studies but encountered prejudices and biases she believed were limited to Australians.
