My name is Marita Kantilla. I live at Forrestry with my partner Bernard.
I have two pet dogs that walk me to work every morning, Lobo and Kurrajuwu. Sometimes they try to sneak into work and sit under my cutting table.
I have worked at Bima since I left school and worked as one of the original Bima Wear models that travelled around Australia. Now I am the head cutter.
On weekends I like hunting for piranga. I like watching AFL football and my favourite football team is Western Bulldogs. My local team is Walama Bulldogs.
