Tiffany Hunter - Founder and Head mentor

Tiffany Hunter is a Taungurung woman from East Victoria and Director and Lead Counsellor at Nerdu Badji Education.

With over 12 years ‘experience in the education and employment sector, Tiffany is living out her passion and goals of owning and directing a mentorship business that provides a network of like-minded individuals that draw on experiences and support each other to reach goals and full-fill life to its greatest potential.

“Getting to this point was not without hard work and determination. “says Tiffany. With an intense upbringing and with the heavy pain that exists within her past she knows the importance of being independent and to believe in people that can’t feel a sense of self-belief.

Having one person believe and see her potential made her feel as though her goals could become her reality. “I believe when we strengthen our cultural identity we understand where we are headed and what we can achieve.” Tiffany explains

Tiffany created Nerdu Badji Education to inspire, encourage and empower those from disadvantaged backgrounds and help to create a better life. It was important to her to provide the community access to training and education programs that help with gaining sustainable and meaningful employment with a holistic mentoring approach.2

“All it takes is one person to believe in you to have self belief.”
