CASS Graduation Luncheon Alumni Speech (Dec 2018)

Posted on 18 December 2018

Arts graduate Charlee-Sue Frail is a Ngemba woman and the first person in her family to graduate from university. She completed her studies in 2014, attaining a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Political Science and Anthropology.

During her degree, Charlee-Sue worked at Recognise, the educational campaign for constitutional recognition of first Australians. She went on to become their Manager of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Engagement.

"At ANU I was lucky enough to be taught by some of the best academics in the country and there was a lot of flexibility within my degree to do more research based projects which enabled me to focus on what I wanted to learn.”

Charlee-Sue describes herself as being deeply committed to social change, with a strong interest in political advocacy, decision-making and policy. Her professional endeavours have borne this out.

Since 2016, she has been working in Sydney as the Indigenous Programs Manager for AFL NSW/ACT. Charlee-Sue is also currently an Advisor to Social Justice Commissioner June Oscar’s “Wiyi Yani U Thangani” project; a national conversation that is hearing from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Women and Girls from across the country about the strengths and challenges they face in their everyday lives.
