Change a student’s life

Medhi Nawa

Because of you, I’m giving back and leading change in our community.

Mehdi Nawa, student ambassador and scholarship recipient

I came to UWA through Fairway, an alumni funded access program that gave me the support and pathway to university I needed as a refugee from Afghanistan and the first in my family to attend university.

I’m passionate about change and making sure no-one is left behind. Studying at UWA has opened doors for me. I’m now involved with Amnesty International UWA and the Perth Global Shapers Hub. In the spirit of giving back, I am also a mentor to other students.

My journey to UWA was supported by alumni like you.

With a gift to the Alumni Fund, you can help more students like me who want to learn and make a difference - and just need the chance.
