ABDI ADEN – SHINING: THE STORY OF A LUCKY MAN - Waurn Ponds Library | Waurn Ponds Library | Wednesday, 25. March 2020
Abdi Aden was 15 years old when Somalia’s vicious civil war hit Mogadishu and he lost contact with his family. At the age of 16 Abdi arrived in Melbourne with no English, no family or friends, no money and no home. Against all odds he completed his education, went to University and became a youth worker. Abdi is a most inspiring man, who is constantly thankful for his life and what he has. Everything he has endured and achieved is testament to his quiet strength, courage and resilience.
