About Roushini

My name is Roushini and I am proud to be Indian Australian. I have spent over four, fun filled decades, working with all ages as a incursion facilitator bringing inclusive, fun, enteratining and educational presentations to venues around Australia and overseas. 

I love learning about as how our minds are endlessly brimming with curiosity and that we are so willing to take on new ideas and immediately apply it to the world around them.
It is fascinating therefore I find myself truly passionate in my pursuit to create and deliver high quality learning experiences for all age.

I am always learning about new ideas and concepts so that I can design and create inclusive experiences full of fun, play and learning for children. youth, adults and elders.

Meanwhile I have also found time to write and publish two wonderful books, both of which are based on the learnings from my own culture to complment children’s health and well-being – The Magical Rainbow Inside You and My Mummy Tickles My Rainbow.

I have established We-Connect bringing activities, festivals and events to travel to regions around Australia to provide with new, fun experiences for individuals to enjoy.
