I take this opportunity to congratulate a very special student in my electorate, Roghayeh Sadeghi, who recently won a Newsboys Foundation youth leadership award at the Victorian student representative awards in Melbourne.
Ms Sadeghi arrived in Australia from Iran with her family of nine in 2012. Hailed by her peers as an inspirational leader, Ms Sadeghi transformed herself from someone who spoke no English to head of Northern Bay College’s student leadership across five campuses. She seeks to challenge stereotypes, and she certainly is doing so.
Her determination has been recognised with this award presented by the Minister for Education last week.
