Justina Datjiwuy Dhamarrandji

Justina, the younger sister of Evelyn, also from Galiwin’ku and attending Belmont High School, decided to make the journey down to Geelong and pursue her dreams of getting a good education and playing footy at the highest level possible. She had a great start to the 2018 year, playing and training with the Geelong Falcons as well as the U/18 St. Joseph’s girls footy team. Unfortunately in her first practice game of the season, she ruptured her ACL and required a full knee reconstruction. It was a tough start to her year down in Geelong, being so far from home and not being able to play any sport, however her resilience and strong mental toughness got her through. Justina had a knee reconstruction in August 2018 and we hope to see her back on the footy field within 12 months. Justina hopes to complete 3 years of study down here in Geelong and graduate from Year 12, with the hope to go on to further studies.
