Ingrid Laguna: Resilience & Achieving Your Goals

Session Info:

Ingrid Laguna has been through extraordinary life experiences, both challenging and breath-taking. She left home and school at fifteen years of age, toured Europe, Asia and Australia with an all-girl percussion band, recorded several albums, and took percussion and song writing workshops.

With performance group Ruby Fruit Jungle, she supported Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant and Jimmy Page, playing at Australia’s biggest entertainment venues.

In the Australian film industry, Ingrid worked as a crew member on numerous television commercials, a telemovie and a short film.

Following the loss of her twin boys after six months in intensive care, Ingrid’s memoir, Serenade for a Small Family (A&U) was awarded a Varuna Fellowship and, after publication, The Age Non-Fiction Book of The Week.

Further to her Melbourne University studies, her junior fiction novel, Songbird, was inspired by over five years working with young people from refugee backgrounds at an intensive English language school. Ingrid has also been published in The Monthly magazine and the AEU magazine.
