Samantha Harris

Samantha is one of Australia’s most successful models. She started her modelling career when she was only 13 and featured on the cover of Vogue Australia at the age of 18, making her the second Aboriginal woman to do so.

Samantha is passionate about stamping out racism and empowering Indigenous Australians.

World Vision Australia is thrilled that she is partnering with us as our first female First Nations Goodwill Ambassador.

World Vision’s work

World Vision Australia works globally with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice. Our work in long-term community development, policy advocacy and change, and emergency relief addresses not only the symptoms of poverty, but also its complex and interrelated causes.

Samantha has a special interest in our work with Australia First Nations communities. In July 2019, she travelled to the Kimberley region of Western Australia to see the work we are doing in partnership with local Aboriginal communities. During her visit, Samantha learnt about our projects focusing on early childhood education, youth skills development and employment.
