    Dreaming of an Australian future
    Nadir* is from Afghanistan. In 2012, he fled his country fearing for his life. He arrived in Australia seeking asylum; a new start. A life without fear. He knew no one when he arrived. Back home, he had a university degree. A job. A family and friends – some of them became casualties of the 13-year conflict that has claimed at least 21,000 civilian lives. He told me he didn’t want to leave his home, his country, but how can you stay when faced with death?

What do you say to the young person who was born into a male body but lets you know that he has come to the realisation that he is female, and wants to connect with others who feel the same way? What do you say to the woman who expresses her frustration at the lack of knowledge about depression and interest in her recovery of her long time GP?

The resources boom that has swept some families to prosperity but inflated prices beyond the reach of others. The fly-in-fly-out workers on gas fields and mines spending weeks away from loved ones. The regular flooding that swamps properties and destroys livelihoods.
