As a 17 year-old, Arwin left his homeland and a life of persecution to seek safety, freedom and a new life in Australia. At the age of 10 in Afghanistan, he would beg his mother for money to buy pictures of sandy beaches and green trees filled with colourful birds. For Arwin, these images were the essence of his dream of a new and different life. Arwin has finally achieved his dream. Now aged 23, he lives and studies in Brisbane; he is doing an arts degree and wants to become a filmmaker to help change this world for the better.
