IT HAS been three years in the making, but Wagga's Leanne Sanders' new app finally went live on Friday afternoon.
Visual Dreaming is a First Nations, female-led tech company focused on helping others tackle the lonely journey of mental health by creating a movement where people can connect and care for each other as one.
Ms Sanders said her idea was born during a time of grief after the lost of her cousin Dallas Gowans to suicide and watching others fall through the cracks as they struggled to access mental health services.
It is her hope that this new app will encourage its users to set goals and provide a team around them, to achieve said goal.
"People don't know what goals are and what the possibilities can be," she said.
"I want for everyone ... to believe that no matter what walk of life they have come from anything is possible when you set goals."
Although she admits it has been "a lonely journey" with a lack of Aboriginal tech companies to bounce ideas off, she said.
However, Ms Sanders said she was proud to become a role model to other women and Indigenous people in the future, who are inspired to follow a similar path.
"Whenever someone tells me they have an idea for an app, I get so excited regardless of who it is," she said.
"When you have champions believing in you and supporting you that is how we can change the world."
