I’ve Chosen The Same Pathway – Zinah
Meet Zinah. Today is her birthday. She joins Western Sydney MRC on our new venture of the discovery of Western Sydney and its rich diversity through storytelling and the amazing world of podcasts. In this episode Zinah talks of her experience overseas in Iraq, of her passion for learning and how reading by the light of a fire during the war kept her hopeful.
Life is full of many challenges, and Zinah is extremely focused on her education and shows that within is the ability to summon your inner courage and find support. We hope Zinah’s story inspires you… to stand tall and follow your dreams, wherever they may take you. SameSame Different. This is Western Sydney.
Zinah shares her motivations and challenges and how arriving in Australia has changed her life forever. Her mother and mentor in life inspired her to follow a path of caring for others and she shares how strength and passion manifest in her everyday life, in her studies and in relationships.
