For so long terrorism and violence seemed like a distant threat, until a lone gunman held 18 people hostage for 17 hours at the Lindt Cafe in Martin Place.
Selina Win Pe was lucky to survive the traumatic events of that day, but she was determined to make something out of the terrible tragedy.
Ms. Win Pe, through her organisation Will of Courage, has now made it her life's mission to aiding rural, regional and remote Australia through mental health awareness and incredibly generous donations
She recently visited Parkes to support a town that is very dear to her heart.
"The Parkes Shire Council is a very very big part of of how my journey of love has continued to evolve from humble beginnings.
"Amongst my dear country mayors, farmers and friends, I have the biggest warm hearted regard for dear Ken Keith," says Ms. Win Pe.
Since the events of December 15 2014 Selina has been living proof of resilience and courage needed to deal with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
It means she is the perfect spokesperson, role model and speaker for rural communities struggling with the complexities of rural life.
She also does a huge amount of ambassadorial work for charities such as Rural Aid, and even though one may put a dollar amount on her incredible donations, her contribution to rural Australia is priceless.
