161. Strengths Untold: Joseph Youhana ~ A Journey Of Persistence (Ep.24)

April 14, 2022

💪🕵️‍♀️

Joseph Youhana never expected his successful life in Iraq would one day cease to exist, with events in his country forcing his family to flee and begin a new life from scratch, in Australia. Since arriving here,  Joseph has traversed countless job opportunities through sheet grit. His ‘can do’ attitude coupled with an intuitive desire to connect to others, has resulted in Joseph impacting lives for the better at a micro and macro level. Joseph’s lived experience as a refugee coupled with his detailed understanding of the settlement scenario in Australia, situate him as a national expert with international recognition. This is an astonishing story.

159. Strengths Untold: Justine Sless ~ A Journey To The Funny Side Of Serious (Ep.22)

March 10, 2022

💪🕵️‍♀️

In this episode, I speak with Justine Sless, a Melbourne based & Northern UK born comedian, author and humour academic. Justine speaks candidly about how a childhood of grit and numerous challenges informed her resilience and dry wit. Her foray into stand-up culminating in a debut book about the challenges for female comediennes makes for a great yarn.

158. Strengths Untold: Najma Sambul ~ The Blessings of Books & Storytelling Through Art (Ep.21)

158. Strengths Untold: Najma Sambul ~ The Blessings of Books & Storytelling Through Art (Ep.21)

March 3, 2022

💪🕵️‍♀️

Najma Sambul arrived in Tasmania as a toddler from Somalia, experiencing crushing racism as well as extraordinary kindness through a childhood of growing up African in Australia. Her passion for reading, writing and expressing identity have culminated in a lifelong ambition to become a journalist and more recently, to manifest cultural heritage via a Somali art exhibition, which Najma co-curated. She speaks with a conviction about using art to flip the script for young Somali Australians fatigued with racist narratives. She's all about storytelling and celebrating identity.

156. Strengths Untold: Ahmed Hassan ~ The Power of Speaking Up Against Systems (Ep.19)

156. Strengths Untold: Ahmed Hassan ~ The Power of Speaking Up Against Systems (Ep.19)

January 23, 2022

💪🕵️‍♀️

If Ahmed Hassan hadn't defied the odds by ignoring the advice of his school counsellor to forgo his VCE, he likely would not be the 2022 Young Australian of the Year for Victoria.  In this remarkable interview, Ahmed candidly shares how his keen observation of young migrant kids proved they do not lack potential, but instead, platforms and self-belief to thrive. Ergo, at just 18 years of age, his calling to co-found a youth-led organisation for young people by young people was realised, proving that passion yields results when hard work is the fuel.

155. Strengths Untold: Shankar Kasynathan ~ The Social Justice Salesman (Ep.18)

155. Strengths Untold: Shankar Kasynathan ~ The Social Justice Salesman (Ep.18)

December 19, 2021

💪🕵️‍♀️

Shankar Kasyanthan knows that persistence is key to making a dent in the armour of political obstinance. As National Campaign Manager for Amnesty, he brings a tenacity to human rights, informed by a lived experience of seeing family and communities persecuted for their beliefs & race. In a fateful twist, Shankar learned only hours after this interview that a 4-year long campaign he has championed to improve the community sponsorship program for refugees was finally announced by the Australian government; there are no coincidences!

154. Strengths Untold: When Tenacity Meets Humility ~ The Brave and Brilliant, Dr Batool Albatat (Ep.17)

154. Strengths Untold: When Tenacity Meets Humility ~ The Brave and Brilliant, Dr Batool Albatat (Ep.17)

December 9, 2021

💪🕵️‍♀️

Dr Batool Albatat will have you rethink everything you thought you knew about resilience.  Her story of fleeing from persecution with her family across continents as a child, culminating in a perilous journey by boat to Australia, makes for a gripping interview. Despite setbacks in seeking asylum, gaps in her schooling and enduring racism after 9/11, Batool's tenacity is palpable. That she now has a double degree and is training to be a GP is a salute to her humble ascent to success, overcoming hardships most of us could only imagine.

153. Strengths Untold: Nina Springle ~ How A Girl From Frankston Found Her Way To Zanzibar (Ep.16)

November 21, 2021

💪🕵️‍♀️

Raised by her migrant Polish-Czech grandparents in SE Melbourne, Nina Springle's early life was infused with stories of post-war survival, hardship and resilience. This fuelled Nina's steely determination to chart her own course in study, careers and adventure.  However, from suburban Frankston, family chaos and visa rejections, to a one-way ferry to Zanzibar, Nina's choices and fate presented her with a future unlike any she'd imagined.  These events have coloured her life with a passion to pursue social and environmental justice, which we discuss in this episode of 'Strengths Untold'.
