Mohamed Semra is a professional with long-term experience in developing relationships and liaising with community stakeholders, with years of service as a leader and mentor.
However, it was not always so easy. Growing up in Sudan Mohamed saw first hand the injustice and prejudice placed upon himself, his family and so many other minority tribes who were socially outcast by society. In hopes of finding a new home his mother had decided to seek a better life in a new country, one not preordained by possessions, status or wealth, where their potential would not be stifled by others’ preconceptions. So Mohamed and his family moved to Australia.
Mohamed went on to start his primary education where he immediately realised that while Australia was far more accepting and their lives were far better off then back home, unfortunately there were people he met for the first time that seemed to have a preconceived idea of his behaviour and intentions. This highlighted a grave issue and for as long as he can remember Mohamed has worked to shatter the misconceptions and stigma surrounding African migrants and refugees.
Mohamed possesses an unyielding work ethic and personal drive that has seen him receive the Race Discrimination commissioners Student Prize and Appointment as School Captain.
