Refugee grad­u­ate makes us proud

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - FEEDBACK -

WHAT a cham­pion Adija Issa is (“From refugee to HSC, Adija earns spot with col­lege elite”, The Stan­dard, Fe­bru­ary 10). What a story of guts, sac­ri­fice and com­mit­ment.

Con­grat­u­la­tions for grad­u­at­ing from Year 12 Bid­will cam­pus. Be­ing a refugee would have been hard enough but learn­ing English, be­ing home­less for a year and trav­el­ling all the way from Fair­field – you are in­deed a hero and a true role model.

Adija is a won­der­ful ex­am­ple of the life­sav­ing, life-chang­ing need to sup­port refugees and bring them here to Aus­tralia, a coun­try of free­dom and price­less op­por­tu­nity.


WE HEAR so much bad stuff about the young­sters to­day it is won­der­ful to hear a good story.

Wish­ing them all the very best in

their fu­tures, what­ever they choose to fol­low. CHRIS MATTHEWS, on Face­book
