SIA Announcement (21 October 2017)

We are proud to announce that Ms. Shahrezad Ghayrat was one of the key speakers at today’s Welcome to Australia ‘Walk Together 2017’. Shahrezad told her story as a Uyghur Asylum Seeker who, through her mother’s sacrifices was brought to Australia, along with her sister, six years ago. It was a poignant and inspirational speech.

Shahrezad, you’ve come a long way. You are a credit to your people, to your newly adopted country, and to SIA.
