Champions along with Coleman Greig Lawyers hosted the latest event for the Young Professionals of Western Sydney. The guest speaker was Deng Adut who is a Sudanese born lawyer who rose to prominence in the Western Sydney University's Stories of Unlimited advertising campaign.
Deng arrived in Australia at the age of 14 as a refugee. He is now a successful criminal lawyer and litigator who is based in Western Sydney. Deng recounted about his youth in Sudan where he was a child soldier and the difficulties he overcame during his time in Sudan and his arrival in Australia as a teenager.
He has achieved so much and made us realise that coming from humble beginnings or in his case growing up in war torn Sudan; if you have the mindset to achieve great things – great things can be achieved.
Mark Ciampi was the MC for the event which attracted over 100 young professionals from the local western Sydney community, illustrating the growth of this successful networking event.
