Episode 53 – Indigenous stories with rona glynn-mcdonald

This episode brings you Caspar's conversation with 23-year-old social entrepreneur Rona Glynn-McDonald. Rona is a Kaytyete woman from Central Australia, and the founder and CEO of CommonGround, a not-for-profit organisation that shares First Nations cultures, histories and lived experiences through storytelling.

After going to school in Alice Springs, Rona moved to Melbourne to study Economics and Finance where she realised just how few non-indigenous Australians had been exposed to the 60,000 year old cultures of First Nations people. This led her to rekindle her creative side and was the genesis of Common Ground. Today she's also working to start a 'First Nations Practice' within the Foundation for Young Australians' (FYA) "YLab" youth consulting firm. 

 Rona and Caspar discussed her journey across Australia and how she came to create Common Ground. She highlighted some of the work they are doing capturing ancient stories that have never before been shared outside their country and culture, and (as always) discussed her passion, struggle and hopes for the future.
