I first met Sudesh over on Manus Island as a young teenager back in 2013. He and his family were seeking asylum here in Australia and had been sent to Manus Island for their claim to be processed. I was a support worker there at the time and got to know Sudesh and his family well. In 2014 Sudesh and their family were successful in their application and came to Australia as Refugees. Since then Sudesh has created a life here in Brisbane and is one of the most genuine, kind outgoing people I have ever come across. His positive attitude and outlook on life is infectious to all who come in contact with him.
Sudesh is currently working at a local gym teaching boxing classes and personal training sessions. His passion is Youth Work and Sudesh wants to support vulnerable young people through their challenges and difficult times they may be going through. Sudesh has done volunteer work with the not for profit organisation I work for and has recently been successful in gaining casual employment in the youth team which is giving him some invaluable experience.
However, due to visa restrictions Sudesh can not apply for government help to support his study goals and ambitions. He is motivated and wanting to better his life and the lives of other young people. To do this he needs to study his Diploma to get his qualification in Youth work/Child Family and Youth Intervention. This would set Sudesh up for a world of opportunities so he could pursue his passion and dream.
I am asking anyone who has the means to support Sudesh with any amount of money to please do so. If we reach $5000 this would set Sudesh up to be able to kick start his studies and be able to achieve this goal to support and work with vulnerable young people and make a real difference.
This is a young man who has been through more than most of us will ever go through in a lifetime. Sudesh has come out on the other side of all these adversities a positive, respectful genuine, caring, kind and outgoing individual looking to help others. Your donations would be so very appreciated and would be going to a great individual to make real change. Lets make his dream come true!
