My name is Josepha Kantilla. I have worked at Bima Wear since it began in 1969. 2009 marked my 40th year with Bima Wear. I work with my younger sister Marita. She is our cutter. I enjoy our trips away. This year we went to WOMADelaide and met many interesting and nice people.
I like to go hunting for yuwuli (mangrove worm), piranga (long bum), and tukuwaringa (mussel).
I like watching TV - mainly AFL and Home and Away. My teams are Western Bulldogs and Irrimaru (Bulldogs)
