·         Ed Yousef is a hard-working young man from Syria who arrived here in 2013, seeking a safe place to live away from war and destruction and looking to start a new life with better opportunities. He is currently studying at UNSW majoring in Pathology. He is also a tutor, having first volunteered with SydWest’s study centre program for young people from refugee and other migrant backgrounds.

·         Iakram Abdalla is a young Sudanese woman who has been in Australia for 14 years and is currently participating in the SydWest Small & Emerging Leadership Communities project.
