Stories of Achieving New Australians

At the age of 11, Mohammad became an apprentice tailor in Afghanistan. With the Taliban arriving in his town of residence, Mohammad fled to Iran, continuing his profession as a tailor and dressmaker specialising in western and traditional attire for 18 years.

He applied for a humanitarian visa to be resettled in South Australia after being sponsored by a relative. Arriving two years ago, Mohammad obtained employment as a tailor in a store located in Rundle Mall. After working for a year, he sponsored his wife to join him. “Life is good and if you work hard, you can have a bright future,” he said.
