I grew up in a refugee camp in Nepal. As democracy came to Bhutan, the government forced my parents to exile the country and go to Nepal. They lost their home, their possessions, their country, their relatives - they weren’t sure what to do next. We faced many challenges in the refugee camp, especially in the beginning. Our houses were made of bamboo, thatch and plastic. There was no electricity, so we needed to do most things during the day. There wasn’t enough water. We got firewood to cook food. There were no materials for schooling, not enough medicine, and 3 doctors for 17,000 people. My parents always worried about us. I’d always see tears in my parent’s eyes. For our better, brighter future, we came to Australia in 2012. I was 17 when I first arrived in Wodonga, Victoria. All I knew about Australia is that it is surrounded by big oceans, and big snakes are found everywhere. After that I got lots of opportunities, such as school to study, access to hospitals etc. My parents faced challenges such as trauma, isolation, depression, alongside the language barriers. My challenge was guiding them, showing them direction and managing my own time for study as well. At La Trobe, I’ve met a diverse range of new friends and supportive teachers. It’s been a fun, challenging and exciting journey, and I feel awesome and thankful to be a part of the La Trobe community. Now I have many friends, a job, and I’m able to help my family and the community with persistently learning to speak English. After graduation, I want to help and support our Australian community. I want to be a good role model for our youths. — Bhakta, Bachelor of Nursing #WorldRefugeeDay #WithRefugees #Refugee #alburywodonga

‘It wasn’t an easy decision for my father to make, to separate our family and take the risk to die in a boat. But he had no other options. He was driven by the hope of a better future for us. Because of what I’ve been through, and because of what my family have been through, I have a sense of obligation to do well. My parents sacrificed a lot to get us here. There's no time to waste and no room to mess around given what we’ve gone through.’ After her lengthy ordeal at sea, Iraqi refugee Batool settled in Melbourne and began studying Biomedical Science. ‘La Trobe was a friendly environment. I made close friends there who I’m still in contact with. My course had many lab classes and lectures and I went to nearly all of them—going to class was important to me.’ She’s now achieved her dream and is working as a doctor at Northern Health. ‘It’s very rewarding. You’re helping people in their most vulnerable time of their life. It’s been an amazing journey and every day is fascinating. ‘The journey has been tough, but nothing is easy. Everything comes with challenges, so you just have to face them. In the transition from school to university, you become responsible for your own life.’ —Dr Batool Albatat, Bachelor of Biomedical Science. #WorldRefugeeDay #WithRefugees

‘I was 10 years old when I came to Bendigo with my mum, brother and grandma. Living in Bendigo was totally different from life in the refugee camp, where there was no gas or electricity. We had to adapt to a new environment, a new lifestyle and a new language. I couldn’t understand a single word, except “hello”. If someone asked how I was, I would just look at them and smile. I felt that I did not belong in this foreign country. I eventually accepted that it was essential for me to learn the language in order to achieve my goal of a university education. Now that my standard of English has gradually improved, I feel like this is actually a home for me. When I started my Pharmacy degree, I was shocked to see how diverse university actually is. I was very happy to see Bendigo becoming so inclusive and welcoming. I have made so many friends in my course, I consider them as my “pharmily”. Hopefully, I will soon be able to get an internship in Bendigo because this place has provided me with a sense of belonging. I want to use my skills and experience as a translator to give Karen, Poe Karen and Burmese people a better understanding of the products and services that are available at Pharmacies. I want to give back to my community and the wider world.’ - GaiPorh, Bachelor of Pharmacy(Hons.)

‘I was only 1 when I arrived in Australia—my father had lost all of his brothers and his father because of Saddam Hussein, and he was close to losing his own life. So he left the country for Iran, before coming to Australia. Because my father arrived a year before us, he told us many good things about the country—but most importantly, he said it was a safe place for us to live. I was too young to sense the challenges at the start, however my parents found the language barrier made it hard to communicate with people. My mother and sister had some experiences of racism, which were pretty hard to face. La Trobe has given me a real sense of multiculturalism. Everyone from various backgrounds and cultures get along here, uniting as the human race. One thing that some people don’t always understand about refugees is that we are all the same; we make look different but we are one. My goals are to complete my Master’s degree than do my PHD. I would like to work in child protection than make it into the United Nations. Ali, Bachelor of Human Services Master of Social Work, La Trobe Shepparton campus. #RefugeeWeek2019 #WithRefugees #latrobeuni #shepparton

'I was 19 when I first arrived in Australia with my family. We left Syria because of the negative impacts of the war, and threats from terrorists because of my Christian religion. The most challenging part of moving here is meeting people; I still find it hard. However, I found cultural differences very helpful to me as a way to gain more knowledge about different people from all over the world, which will help at work in the future. The greatest thing that I've enjoyed at La Trobe is the way people from different cultures are treated the same as Australians, with equality and no discrimination. My dream is to become an Australian citizen, get into a dentistry course and after that find a successful job as a dentist.’ - Feras, Bachelor of Health Science #RefugeeWeek2019 #WithRefugees #latrobeuni
