“Racism is an issue that I am very passionate about. It is important for myself to speak out about racism and try to educate people on the unmeasurable benefits, diversity and multiculturalism brings to our society. Whether it be in the workplace, the community, one’s family or just amongst friends. I hope to bring more awareness to this great organisation and hopefully together we can all make a difference and have a positive impact on society by eradicating racism.” Bruce is an Australian professional footballer who is the current Captain and striker for Hyundai A-League club Adelaide United.
