BIOGRAPHY: Rowena Morgan was born in 1975 in Sydney where she completed her schooling and further studies as a teacher at U.N.S.W
The compulsion to exhale herself in the arid region of N.S.W was fulfilled when she accepted three weeks of casual teaching at Broken Hill High School where she followed her aunty Kay Morgan with her first paid teaching position in Broken Hill.
Rowena is currently self-employed perusing a future of peace.
