Aleisha plays the character of Young Nan and appears in episode 4 called “Sorry” which will be aired on Friday 9 March. This episode has been chosen as a finalist in the 28th Prix Jeunesse International Awards, held in Munich later this year.

"Working on Grace Beside Me was so much fun," said Aliesha. "The storyline is sad, being that it’s about The Stolen Generation, but I feel blessed to be a part of such an important episode, especially since this year is the 10th Anniversary of the National Apology."

All 13 episodes of Grace Beside Me, are available on SBS On Demand.

Well Done Aleisha!
