Tara is young and passionate. Sharing a cup of coffee with her will give you hope that humanity is not doomed just yet. Besides being smart and successful, she is currently working on her PhD in medical science, she wants to help the Kurdish community to thrive and prosper and share their rich heritage with all of us. Her story will make her proud of your own ancestors and hopefully ignite a spark of curiosity about others.
What do you want to change during your lifetime?
The way people think. I want to teach people the idea that an ethnicity shouldn’t determine your rights. That as diaspora Kurds, and other ethnicity’s, it is our duty to maintain our language, heritage and culture. In order to fully integrate within our perspective societies we must remain true to our identity. To teach others that being Kurdish, Italian, Greek etc makes us Australian, makes us pay respect to the true ancestors of this land and the future leaders of this country. To use this countries freedom to fight for the rights of humans and make not just this country but this world a better place.
What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about who I am, about being Kurdish. I am passionate about the rich Kurdish culture and heritage. About the Kurdish people that are constantly fighting for peace and freedom for all whom are under oppression and occupation. I am passionate about our beautiful Kurdish women whom have through out history liberated their worth and become role models for women in the middle east, and the rest of the world. I am most passionate about Kurdistan and its mountains which constantly weep for peace to reign upon their serenity.
