I have dedicated myself to working within community with a clear focus on a common goal: advocating for positive social changes which addresses entrenched issues of disadvantage and inequality in Australian society.
Hanina has extensive experience working within the Aboriginal community, both in the community sector and now in her role at Shine Lawyers.
As an Aboriginal woman, I wanted the opportunity to advocate for Aboriginal people and those who have experienced significant transgenerational trauma, dispossession and institutional abuse.
Hanina has presented to law firms, schools and other organisations about the importance of strengthening connection to culture, family, community and Country, and promoting self-determination for Aboriginal communities being crucial elements for healing, wellbeing and resilience.
Hanina studied law at La Trobe University and was admitted as a solicitor in 2020. Prior to her work in the legal and community sectors, Hanina worked in IT for 15 years.
