Yarra Foundation
Founder, President

I work as an academic at RMIT University. During my life, I have seen people grow out of poverty, communities prosper, and countries go from under-developed to developing, and from developing to developed. I have seen the role of education in all of these. My world similarly changed from a small family to a town, from a town to a country, and from a county to the globe. All these changes came through education. I was fortunate to have access to education, but I know there are many in my country who are not that lucky. I am here to return the favor and help them to find ways to better life. I believe everyone has a right to education; everyone should have a say in their own destiny. I am here to help some to gain that right.
