Talisha has a working knowledge of the social and economic problems facing Aboriginal youth and says identifying pathways of change by liaising with community is crucial to addressing those issues.

She encourages Aboriginal youth to join their Local Aboriginal Land Councils and follow the cultural and organisational protocols of learning from their Elders and leaders within the Land Rights network.
