On the Fala with APEN

Welcome to our #OnTheFala series, featuring the inspiring and passionate people who make APEN what it is.


As a first-generation Australian from Western Sydney, Christine is firmly committed to empowering marginalised communities through education. Her steadfast belief is that education is a powerful tool for effecting positive change, and she is dedicated to channelling her skills and experiences to make a tangible difference in the lives of those around her.
