A family's refugee story

Karen is truly passionate about refugees. She’s so passionate that she shared her story with us. Karen hopes that by sharing her story we can see asylum seekers and refugees in a different light – we hope so too.

“My family's story is a refugee story. My parents packed up the little they had and with my sisters, fled from unjust persecution and genocide and dared to hope for a new life and a better future. They were given a chance at this in Australia and have since flourished. They contribute to society as everybody else does. They pay taxes. They vote. They came from nothing and now have 3 daughters who are university graduates. We are a refugee success story as a result of compassion and acceptance.
