Hey mob, Jessica Mauboy here. I am a proud Kuku Yalanji and Wakaman woman. I was born in Darwin on Larrakia Nation and I am a singer-songwriter. When I was a little girl I dreamt of becoming a singer. With lots of hard work and a love for writing stories and turning them into songs I was able to make my dream come true. Here is my personal story that is very close to my heart, on how my love and inspiration for my hometown Darwin inspired me to write a love song ’The Day Before I Met You’. I hope it inspires you as much as you all inspire me everyday.
