Marta Menendez

Marta Menendez was born in Argentina. She found the slang in Australia was something she hadn't expected to encounter.

You start to question yourself whether it was worth it. It was hard for the first say six to seven years it was like I had a foot here and a foot in Argentina. I couldn’t decide whether to go back, find the money somewhere do something and go back and stay there. Or stay here trying to continue fighting it and stay here. But I guess what helped deciding to stay was when my children started school
