This paper is written from the autoethnographer’s perspective. It explores my journey into the Academy. In the paper I narrate aspects of my life pathways and experiences associated with markers of identity such as race, ethnicity, language, class and gender. As a white (or a category of white) Greek-Cypriot, bilingual, working class woman I have been engaged with and have participated within the Australian education system as a student, teacher, teacher educator and educational researcher. My experiences inform: 'that which I was', 'that which I am', 'that which I am not' and 'that which I am becoming'. Drawing on my experiences and observations I examine notions of efficacy, agency and care.
