Khual was a teacher in Myanmar before fleeing to Thailand and then to Malaysia. Khual and his wife were resettled in South Australia in 2017. He has completed both an Aged Care and Disability course through Equals International. He also undertook the Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) at TAFE SA. He was trained by the AMRC as a bilingual volunteer in leadership, event management and interpreting. He speaks several languages well. “My volunteer placement has provided me with employable skills as a professional. The AMRC has provided me with an entry point in the Australian job market and it has given me an edge.” He is now working at a private aged care service and linking community members with mainstream services.
