Our Young Achievers
Photo: Ramuana on the job.

At the age of 21, Ramuana arrived in Australia as a humanitarian entrant from Myanmar with his sibling. Being shy and lacking confidence to speak English, he was encouraged to join youth training and leadership opportunities by the AMRC. He actively participated in the AMRC’s Youth Empowerment and Leadership Program, and encouraged other new arrival Matu youth members to join the program. Through the program, he was able to develop his confidence and leadership skills to complete a forklift certificate and undergo training in installing NBN cables. He actively volunteers in the Matu community of South Australia. He studied in the AMEP at TAFESA and at Thebarton Senior College. He has been working with a contractor to install NBN cables for almost two years. “Its hard work, but it’s rewarding.”
