A young former refugee from Afghanistan, who holds a Bachelor Degree of Politics and International Relations and Honours Degree of Arts and Design from the University of Canberra, is now a social enterpreneur who is forging his own path in ensuring refugees and migrants are able to work in fair conditions and lead a life of stability
Hedayat Osyan(Nick) is a social entrepreneur who has exceeded all expectations. His background and journey to CommUnity Construction is both astonishing and inspiring. Having been an ex-refugee, Nick is aware of the disadvantage of refugee and asylum seekers face in the workforce due to a variety of reasons, including the lack of fluency in English. Appreciating his renewed life here in Australia, Nick sought to become a social entrepreneur in order to give back to the community that has given him so much and at the same time, to aid the refugee and asylum seekers.
With assistance from various different parties, Nick established himself and his business and is currently successfully employing refugees, asylum seekers and even offering apprenticeship. It is his mission to change lives and empower the minority to lead a better life. His passion and drive in life is what makes his business thrive and the vision he has for the future, rather one of a kind
