In recent years her Mena has been exploring her writing, winning the Rockhampton Fringe Film Competition for Best Script and Best Film. Inspired by a true story that took her to the Indigenous spiritual lands of Woorabinda where the community and their country brought the script to life. This experience changed her as an artist and ignited her passion for filmmaking.
Mena is now focused on her mentorship with filmmaker and producer Steph Vajda. Driven by a passion for the creative arts and a desire to tell meaningful stories of the human condition that promote connection and thought, Mena finds inspiration in those not so perfect moments when life turns upside down.
