Do you know any unsung heroes? Help Amberley by sharing their story!


In August we shared the fantastic news that Lesmurdie teen Amberley Bradley had won YMCA HQ’s Pitch Please! competition, giving her the chance to kick-start her business venture.

The Pitch Please! competition offered a $1,000 business boost to a creative young person as well as one year’s free use of the new business incubator and co-working space, YCollaborate, at YMCA HQ in Leederville.

18-year-old Amberley’s winning project aims to recognise unsung heroes within the community who regularly do wonderful things without seeking any praise.

The project is called The Obeisance Project and will feature 10-15 portraits of people who are doing amazing things with no expectation of praise or congratulations.

Amberley is wanting to shine a light on these everyday heroes and extend a hand of gratitude through art.

How can you help!? Amberley is calling for anyone with stories of people who contribute so much out of the goodness of their heart, so she can paint a portrait of them and make her project a reality!

Short stories about why your person’s story should be a part of this collection can be sent to and Amberley’s website can be viewed at
