I was always drowning. I couldn't breathe for so many years. I had to do the work alone; I had to fail and fight and lose to get to where I am, and I am so angry... It was a waste of my energy.

- Alison Foletta

Alison Foletta, 31, is an ACM journalist at the Wimmera Mail-Times in southwest Victoria.
