As a young girl, Aliesha was inspired by female Australian sporting heroes Cathy Newman and Kyah Simon. They were women who pushed boundaries in sport, and paved the way for Aboriginal girls
like Aliesha to dream she may be next.
Her mother’s hussle – getting her to games and making sure she always had the right equipment – cemented her journey to the MFCW.
This International Women’s Day, watch Aliesha talk about her heroes and imagine what might be next for women in the AFLW and beyond.
