Judd is a young Wongai man from Leonora, a small town in the North-Eastern Goldfields region or Western Australia who is studying at Cambridge University. Judd’s principal motivation for studying at Cambridge is to expand his engineering knowledge to develop projects which have the potential to improve the well-being of Indigenous Australians living in regional Australia. Judd is a STELR Ambassador.
