“IN AUSTRALIA I WILL BE…”
Everyone has a story to tell, and the stories of migrants are particularly important to be heard.
“In Australia I will be…” is a series of stories collected in collaboration with the Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) at North Metropolitan TAFE. Four AMEP students underwent a series of storytelling workshops at the Centre for Stories to learn the art of positive storytelling to empower them for training and employment opportunities.
These stories profile some of the hard-working migrants who are integrating into Australian society and making a positive impact on those around them.
