The name of the woman who is hoping to change her name to Australia after losing her mother in the war is ‘Anna’.
The name ‘Anna’ was used as a name by her mother for her children before her death, and it is a name that she has used in her new role as an ambassador for her new country.
Anna was born in Perth, but moved to Australia to study, and now lives in a caravan park in Victoria, and hopes to change it to ‘Anna’, as her mother was known.
“I was very young when I had her,” Anna told ABC Radio Perth.
She [my mother] was very proud of me, and when she died, she told me that she wanted me to take her name and call myself ‘Anna’.” She is taking the name as a symbol of hope for her nation. “
When I was young, I was very excited to see that my name would change.
She [my mother] was very proud of me, and when she died, she told me that she wanted me to take her name and call myself ‘Anna’.” She is taking the name as a symbol of hope for her nation.
Her name was given to her after she took part in the Battle of Vimy Ridge, when Australian troops were killed and wounded, and her father was also a member of the Australian army.
The Australian Defence Force, which was the first to enter the war, was a military unit that included women.
During the war women were not allowed to join the military, and so Anna took part as a woman.
Now she has adopted the name ‘Aussie-Born-In-Australia’, as a tribute to her mother.
After receiving a PhD in political science from Melbourne University, Anna became a freelance journalist, and has since moved to New Zealand.
Despite being in Australia for four years, she says she has never forgotten the name of her mother, and wants to take the opportunity to do so again.
And so Anna has been volunteering at a refugee camp for women, and is trying her hand at getting her mother back to Australia.
As Anna said, she is proud of her ‘Anna-ness’, and wants other women in her community to be as proud.

It was only after she and her family returned home in Australia that Anna realised her name had a real meaning.
In 2008 she moved to Sydney, and worked at a local school, until she was offered a job with a group of refugees living in the area.
For six years Anna has lived on the streets, but says she is grateful for the opportunity and has now taken on a project to change Australia’s name.
‘I think it is something that is very important to do for our community, and for our country,’ she said.
So she has been making a Facebook page called ‘Aussies Born in Australia’, and volunteers with the organisation to change the name.
Anna is also hoping to help others by taking on the role of a ‘celebrity ambassador’.
She says she hopes to get more people to change their names, and help people to get back on their feet and become part of Australia’s future.
