My name is Apolina Balebanga. I migrated to Australia in 2008 from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. I am currently studying a Bachelor of Law and International Relations- motivated by my passion for legality and the importance of ensuring fundamental legal doctrine such as the rule of law. I am a member of the Multicultural Youth Council from the Ipswich region. I am also a member of the Ipswich Youth Council. I am generally motivated by my passion to ensure young people are being heard nationally and locally. More specifically, I am an advocate for equal opportunity and work to ensure that opportunities are effectively communicated to young people of migrant and refugee background.
Apolina will be speaking on the panel ' Spotlight on regional communities' on Thursday 13 February
