Amber Parker

22 years old from Cessnock Amber was selected for the Project after unsuccessfully trying out in 2011. She continued with her training throughout the year and made the team in 2012. She wanted to be involved in the Project to reconnect with her Indigenous heritage after admitting that she had previously struggled with her Indigenous identity. Amber studies Social Work at the University of Sydney, and hopes that she can use what she has learned through the Project to help people in her community trapped in the cycle of poverty. Amber is a keen sportswoman and lives with her family in Cessnock.
