Esther Onek

Esther was born in South Sudan and is from the Acholi tribe. Due to South Sudan’s instability her family fled to Kakuma Refugee camp where they lived for seven years. Esther arrived in Australia at the age of ten, unable to speak any English. She went on to obtain a Bachelor of Social Work and now works for Women’s Health and Family Services. She was a speaker at TEDxPerth late last year.
