Deng Thiak Adut grew up on his family’s farm in South Sudan, where his father grew bananas and other food crops. At just six years old, Deng was conscripted by the rebel People’s Liberation Army. This advertisement for Western Sydney University shows Deng's resilience and perseverence, turning his childhood tortue and trauma into a positive result. Deng now works as a lawyer in Bankstown, Australia, ensuring Sudanese people have the legal advice they need before entering the court system.
