Tamesha Cameron

Perth, Western Australia

Poet

Tamesha has not had the easiest path in life, having been in care since age three. Spoken words do not come easily for the proudly Indigenous teenager, but in recent years she has discovered two forms of expression – art and poetry. The teenager’s poems, in particular, are insightful and reflect her life experiences and compassionate nature. She is using her AMP Tomorrow Fund grant to develop her poetry and share it with a wider audience, especially other children in care: “My poems can inspire people who have been through the challenges I faced growing up.”
