Tahnee lives in Adelaide and is from the York Penninsula tribe of Nerunga. Her motivation to be part of the IMP was born from an aspiration to be a strong community leader. Despite applying to be part of IMP, which she has followed for a number of years, she has never been able to attend the trials. Tahnee was raised by her grandparents – her Grandfather who is an Arrernte Man from Alice Springs and Grandmother, an Nerunga woman. Tahnee attended Salisbury High School in Adelaide and following the completion of Year 12, she has completed a Certificate III in Business. Tahnee started running a few years ago to help her overcome significant adversity in her life. She couldn’t believe the way it assisted her change in thinking and is quite a competent runner. Tahnee is passionate about assisting to address the ICE issues in her community and feels that sport is an integral avenue to engage the youth to show them positive pathways and assist them in making positive life choices.
