I really want to make a difference in the education sector. I came to Australia when I was 10 and school and education opened so many doors to me. I went from being a fearful, anxious child of a family seeking refuge in Australia to where I am now (and I hope to go much further in the future). I know that education can help many other children who come from a similar background to me and can empower, encourage, and open many doors to them.
