Our amazing day
OTHER CULTURES ARE VALUED
Families from the Amazing Family Day Care at Mt Druitt will celebrate Australia Day by embracing their diversity.
OPPORTUNITY lured Bangladesh nationals and husband and wife Shamina Mizan and Muhammed Hossain to Australia five years ago.
But they now credit the people and environment for making them want to stay.
The couple, of Mt Druitt, will make it official when they are sworn in as new citizens on Australia Day.
“We love the culture, the quality of life and the people here,” Mr Hossain said.
“The main thing is the people value other cultures, so we can enjoy the many cultures here and our culture as well.”
He said he and his wife had visited almost every Australian state and territory, including Western Australia where daughter Nusaibah Mubashir was born.
“We do miss our family in Bangladesh but they come to visit and I have some family here as well,” Mr Hossain said.
What he did not miss was the roads and busy traffic in Bangladesh.
“There is no speed limit in Bangaldesh but you can’t go very fast because the road is so congested,” Mr Hossain said.
