TASTE OF DIVERSITY

Hear Anyier Yuol’s story

A Taste of Diversity is a dinner with a difference with over 10 diverse cultures involved at this special event in Dural.

Organised by the Community Migrant Resource Centre (CMRC) it is a opportunity to enjoy the music, wine, food and culture from several multicultural communities in Sydney.

Speakers include Anyier Yuol who was born in a refugee camp in Kenya and moved to Australia when she was ten years old. Anyier is a PhD candidate at Western Sydney University and a community youth worker at CMRC.

She is also an international refugee advocate, the founder of not-for-profit Miss Sahara and recently launched Anyier Model Management with the aim to increase diversity in the Australian beauty and modelling industry as well as bring awareness to the under-representation of African women.

Melissa Monteiro, CEO of the Community Migrant Resource Centre said the aim of the dinner was “to enable the community gain a better understanding of refugee communities and their intersection between settlement, integration and building a cohesive community.”

“Refugees arriving in Australia bring with them a vast array of experience, skills and motivation to contribute.”

The Taste of Diversity Dinner will be held at the Madison Function Centre, 632 Old Northern Rd Dural on Wednesday, October 23 5.30pm for a 6pm start.

Tickets are $40. To book or for more information visit www.eventbrite.com.au/e/a-taste-of-diversitytickets-71311776443
