More about Catherine McKenna
I grew up in PNG, studied law and travelled widely before spending 20 years in the Torres Strait.
I was never able to negotiate motherhood and working in law without feeling abject failure for abandoning my children.
That lead to goal setting to feel some success when I wasn’t in paid work.
My first goal was to earn an income as an artist after I stopped working in law.
At that time, I had never completed a work of art. I achieved that goal.
Then I became a yoga teacher.
I moved on to write two books, one that won an award, while I was studying teaching.
I now work casually as a teacher and am a third-year Exercise and Sports Science student working towards my next goal of becoming a freelance writer.
2019 is 20 years since I set that first goal.
