I am currently the Community Organiser at Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) Australia and through my role I am helping to start up refugee action groups across Sydney. Through this I support parishes and communities in their work advocating for and assisting people seeking asylum. I became deeply passionate about advocating for refugee rights and social justice after studying human rights subjects while completing my Bachelor of Applied Psychology at university.
Since then, I have enjoyed being able to do a variety of roles in this area. These have included working at ChilOut advocating for children in immigration detention and coordinating a refugee youth ambassador program, working at Settlement Services International where I ran a community hub at a school supporting refugee and migrant families and I was the Social Justice and Youth Coordinator at Vinnies.
