At the height of his career, singer-songwriter Mitch Tambo found himself laid low.

“It impacted and rocked me in the spirit. It made me question everything. I felt alone, like when you step out on stage or when you’re in front of the camera.”“When you look like me, dress like me, but are a proud, strong cultural man and rock that with your head dress and ochre, very quickly people have got opinions about that.

His mother Roz saw that by his early teenage years, Mitch needed some direction and encouraged him to learn from Elders.“I think she could see straight away that going down a path of embracing my identity and culture would do everything it needed to do for me. However, Mitch would find himself disappointed once he finished high school that his HSC marks would prevent him from going onto further education.“After school I decided I wanted to be an academic, so I rang the [university] programs and they looked at my report and just said, 'Sorry, but I don't think your report meets the mark.'
