It’s Complicated: Grace Tame’s Experience As Australian Of The Year

Picture this: You get a job that you didn’t apply for. You only have to do it for a year...but
here’s the catch - the whole country is watching you as you figure out how to do it.
There’s no job description, no money, no real guidance, and no help from the people who gave it to
you. And the job? Well, it’s essentially about your life, and what you’ve been through.
That is the job of Australian of the Year Recipient, Grace Tame.


With thanks to Grace Tame.
