When Iraj Ahmadyar was in Year 12 he reflected on the journey that had taken him from Afghanistan to school in Australia.
“When I came to Australia I had no one. As soon as I came to North Lake Senior Campus I found everything.”
A determined and talented student, Iraj enjoyed great success in Year 11 and 12. He was a 2010 Defence Force Trades Scholarship winner and at the North Lake Valedictory was awarded the ADF Long Tan Leadership Award and the course prize for Outdoor Education.
Recently he graduated from Curtin University having completed a Bachelor of Electrical Engineering with Honours.
His message is: “Stretch out your branches like the tallest tree because you’re free to choose your path.”
