I liked it that I felt welcome; people were friendly and informal. I did a student placement for a Diploma of Community Services at ACFA and in 2011 became a staff member. Now I get to help other African-Australians through case work, sporting activities and working with schools. I’m proud to be able to be useful to my community.’ Dieudonne
