Zoey Banbinawuy Yunupingu

Zoey comes from Elcho Island and has attended Shepherdson College on the island as well as Kormilda College in Darwin in the past. Zoey is a yapa (sister) for Evelyn and Justina, although Balandas (non-Yolngu) would call them first cousins. Their fathers are brothers, and they all have the same grandfather and grandmother.

Zoey is studying in Year 10 at Belmont High School. She is a talented footballer and is training with St. Joseph’s Women’s Football club in Geelong, with the other young women in our program. Zoey has played some underage representative football in the N.T, and would love to follow Evelyn’s footsteps and play VFLW football for the Geelong Cats.
