Grace

I was born in Buenos Aires, during a period of unemployment my father applied to migrate to Australia. My grandfather took a second mortgage to pay for the airfares. We arrived in 1972 with a suitcase each and $100 US and fell in love with Australia straight away.

I have been an ESL teacher for 30 years. I taught Vietnamese refugees in Darwin and refugees from El Salvador in Melbourne. I also taught African refugees Spanish in Spain. Currently I am employed by TAFE Queensland as a Case Manager for the Adult Migrant English Program.

I was sent a pamphlet from the City Council about With One Voice and was curious. From the first night I felt the choir was a community body, and I wanted to be a part of it. It felt “right” to help. This is secret, so don’t tell anyone, but I can’t really sing!
