ZAHRA
BACHELOR OF ARTS (INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS)

A COURAGEOUS START
A LIFETIME OF OPPORTUNITY

I had limited rights growing up as a young girl in Iran with Afghani heritage. But I refused to let this hold me back. I’ve always believed that with a bit of courage, anything is possible. Leaving our home country was hard and settling into a new country was challenging, but we knew we had to take the chance in order to move forward.
 
It’s this belief that we can do anything that’s helping me achieve even more. And it’s why I am now studying at USQ. The lecturers share my belief that anything can be accomplished when you have a determined spirit. They take pride in helping their students grow. They even helped me to improve my English while guiding me through my studies.
 
Four years later, and I’m a different person to the young Afghani girl who first arrived in Toowoomba with her family, seeking a better life. I’m a courageous student on the way to earning my degree in International Relations.
 
And thanks to USQ’s support, I have the courage to continually keep growing. That’s why I’m continuing to study and am now working towards earning my USQ Law degree.
