A Historical Link

When I discovered the significant historical link that existed between my hometown (Ballarat) and my religion (The Baha’i Faith), I knew it would make for an interesting feature piece.

The story was about Effie Baker – the first Australian Baha’i woman – who was raised right here in Ballarat. I wanted to find out all about her and her background, and the result was the following story which featured in Ballarat Extra at the end of last month.
