Abdul Malek Kazimi
Law student

“I was one of only two students sent from Australia to do pro bono work at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland. I worked with an NGO and learned a lot about the UN and what it does. That’s definitely been the highlight of my course so far.

In 2014 I went to Afghanistan. When I came back, I established a group project with a few close friends. It’s called Project YANA (You Are Not Alone). We provide assistance to newly arrived migrants and refugees. Some are individuals, some are families, and they all need different kinds of help.”
