johnboy 14 March 2013

Canberra Rotoract are giving notice that the 2013 Young Australian of the Year is speaking tonight at the Griffin Centre:

Born in Afghanistan, Akram arrived in Australia 13 years ago and since then has gone from being a self-described ‘ostracised refugee kid with no prospects’ to a talented young leader dedicated to making a positive difference in the community.

Akram is a passionate advocate for polio eradication, having been immunised against the crippling disease as a child. Through continued efforts the international community is close to beating polio for good – join Akram to hear about the journey towards a polio-free world.

It’s 7.30pm to 9pm tonight at the Griffin Centre. RSVP by noon today.
