Anwar has more than 20 years’ experience as an engineering professor and holds multiple degrees. He came to Australia as a refugee in 2017, where SSI supported him to overcome barriers to employment and link with contacts in his field. He secured an interview with the University of Wollongong and, ultimately, a part-time role as a lecturer. This is a significant first step towards his long-term career goal and Anwar says that it feels like a dream come true.
