Karina Hogan comes from a big Aboriginal and South Sea Island family with strong ancestral ties to Northern NSW. She grew up in Woodridge, south of Brisbane, with a dynamic and colourful community that has heavily influenced who she is today. She has produced radio for the ABC on and off for the past ten years. Alongside this, she has worked as a board member for Sisters Inside working with women impacted by the criminal justice system. She currently works on the board of the Children’s Hospital Queensland and is writing a novel that speaks from the perspectives of those she grew up with.
