Hello, my name is Noella Babui. I am the Assistant Manager at Bima Wear. I supervise the workshop and make sure everything runs smoothly on a day to day basis.
I am married to Francisco. We live at Four Mile suburb. I like hunting for mussels. In my spare time I like spending time at home - watching TV programs Murphy’s Law, the Bill and ABC News. I also like to watch AFL on TV - my team is Melbourne Demons.
I was formerly a member of the Tiwi Women’s choir – Ngarukuruwala when we performed as part of the Message Sticks Festival at the Sydney Opera House. Also we performed for the Pope at World Youth Day.
