I am proud Bindal Wulgurukaba-Juru, Mununjali, Kuku Yalanji Man. I was born and raised in Meanjin country (Brisbane, QLD), graduating High school in 2020 at St Joseph’s College Gregory Terrace. Before I joined the Australian Army, I was an apprentice of cabinet making. Due to not having job satisfaction with the trade, my family inspired me to take an advanced career pathway to challenge myself by joining the Australian Army.  I joined the Australian Army on the 11th of October, 2021, and did my recruit training at Wagga Wagga, Kapooka. After I completed my Initial Employment Training, on the 3rd of December I posted to the 1st Combat Engineer Regiment in Darwin NT as I am still currently posted to the unit. I have taken up the opportunities to go on Exercise Crocodile Response, Predator Run and Griffins Guns. I got the opportunity to represent the Australian Army Rugby Union in the Australian Defence Rugby Championships and got selected for the ADF rugby union team.
