Tahlia Burchill

Tahlia Burchill is a descendent of the Kuku Yalanji people in the Daintree Region, far north Queensland.

She graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Dance) in 2012 and a Post Graduate Diploma in Education (Senior Years) in 2014 from the Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane.

The MADALAH scholarship, mentoring and leadership activities have helped Tahlia personally and professionally in the field of Dance and Education. She believes the scholarship allowed her to focus on gaining knowledge, experience and understanding in her field of study, as well as mentoring and leadership activities helped Tahlia to develop confidence and give me a sense of direction.

In 2013, Tahlia was a mentor at the Year 10 Leadership Camp, and she was inspired to see so many youth participating in the event. They motivated her to continue on her own career path and strive to be a positive role model for others.

In September 2013, Tahlia was offered a performer, mentor and teacher role with Indigenous Hip Hop Projects. She toured Australia and remote communities to develop leadership skills and eliminate the word “shame”. Throughout this experience Tahlia remained focused on her positive dance education career and promoted the message of healthy body, mind and spirit.
