On his long path to success – from aspiring professional footballer to actor, director and producer – for every opportunity Aaron Fa’Aoso had, there were setbacks and heartache.

He was six when his father and grandfather both died. His fiercely proud mother and even fiercer grandmother dug deep to raise Aaron and his brothers. Belief in himself as a warrior – literally and metaphorically – made him into a fighter, for better and for worse.

Aaron’s memoir, So Far, So Good, is about connection, loss, laughter and the Torres Strait. Touching on the impacts of racism and the challenges of remote communities, So Far, So Good is a rich and vivid reflection on life told with generosity, humour, emotion and optimism.

Aaron joins Rhianna Patrick for this powerful Writers+Ideas event, as he talks frankly about love, pain, making mistakes and finding happiness again.
