Dunya Alruhaimi


Inspired by her mother, Iraqi student Dunya Alruhaimi moved to Armidale to complete her Masters. She has made many friends through her volunteer work as an Arabic translator, and through organising swimming and driving lessons for local Iraqi women.

Dunya was awarded an International Student Award in 2015. ABC have captured her inspiring story as part of a series of short films about international students studying in NSW.
