The World Indigenous Higher Education Consortium (WINHEC) wishes to send greetings and congratulations to the Ngaragu woman, Ashleigh Barty, who won the Wimbledon championship in tennis.

We realize that as the 2nd Indigenous woman to win the championship you will stand as a great model for young Indigenous people, not only in Australia, but across the world, as did Evonne Goolagong, a Wiradjuri woman, who was also triumphant in winning Wimbeldon 50 years ago. In our time, your victory is felt as a victory of the indigenous experience and its triumph over all the challenges faced by indigenous people around the world. This is even more so for young Indigenous men and women who often struggle to find their place in this every challenging world.
