Who is Anna? PART 2 - with Anna and Nath

Get to know Anna! 

Anna Cocquerel, most famously know as Coco Astoni on Home and Away, recently graduated from the Australian Film Television Radio School (AFTRS)

A remarkable achievement given her early life challenges. Until the age of 9, Anna was unable to read and write due to severe dyslexia. Overcoming a tough start, she entered middle school with low self-esteem and debilitating anxiety. Additionally, she dealt with scoliosis, which required her to wear a full-body brace under her school uniform, leading to bullying.

Despite these obstacles, Anna discovered that life's challenges can build strength. In senior school, she began acting and was cast as Coco Astoni on Home and Away, a role she played for three years.

Anna is passionate about giving hope to students facing learning difficulties, poor body image, anxiety, and bullying. She aims to provide them with tools to overcome their challenges and recognize their unique value.

"I teamed up with Stand Tall because I want to help kids understand that their struggles can empower them. Being different can be a superpower, as seeing the world differently offers a unique perspective."
