Jamal Ssaid Ahmad arrived in Australia in 2016 with his family. Jamal and his family are the first Syrian family to pass the citizenship test. The family were regular participants at the Understanding Civic Responsibilities and English Language classes held at the Northern Area MRC, involving citizenship preparation and learning about the Australian culture. A positive outcome has included 20 families approaching the AMRC to start their citizenship preparation. “I am so grateful – you helped me prepare and I passed the citizenship test.”
