As a young girl, Mikaela Jade was instinctively drawn to the bush.
She recalls running her fingers over rock carvings, curious about the people who engraved the artwork thousands of years ago. She was unaware, back then, that the carvings held important clues to her own identity.
While long sensing her connections, Mikaela only learned of her Indigenous heritage when she was aged 29.
She has since abandoned her career as a bush ranger and is now devoted to preserving and sharing the stories of her people and cultural heritage through #innovative technology.
The mother-of-two is #Founder and CEO of Indigital Storytelling - a technology company which translates the rich history and culture of remote communities and brings it to life in #augmentedreality.
Indigital Storytelling works in a similar fashion to PokemonGo - the user of the app points their phone at a symbol, object or sacred site and an animation opens up to tell its story.
Join us for the girledworld W🌏W Summit to hear Mikaela’s incredibly powerful story and journey through her cultural history to trailblazing tech Founder today.
