Ellie Gaffney’s thirst for knowledge, her determination to succeed and her desire to help her people, shine through these pages as she tells the story of her life and the lives of those she touched. The first identified Torres Strait Islander to become a qualified nursing sister, Ellie encountered discrimination from many quarters. In later years Ellie was involved in setting up the Torres Strait Islander Media Association and the first radio broadcasting studio on Thursday Island.
