How to Change a Life by CQUniversity Podcasts

Cultural caring and connecting with Sam Cooms

April 26, 2021

Noonukul Quandamooka woman Sam Cooms started on her career path determined to help her Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island) community.

Becoming a mum to children with disabilities upended her world, and shifted her priorities.

This episode, Sam explains how her Indigenous values inform both her carer role, and her vision for a more inclusive society for people with disabilities – in Minjerribah, and nationally.

Sam is part of CQUniversity's First Nations Research Higher Degree Academy, the first of its kind in Australia.

How to Change a Life is hosted by Mary Bolling from CQUni Communications. Music by CQUni alumnus Tristan Barton.
