2014 is now closing in the warmth of the Australian summer and it is time to reflect over the last year and thank everybody for supporting Far From Africa.
Far From Africa has now been running for one and half years and has reached almost 10,000 views across many countries. The top three countries being Australia, the United Stated and Brazil, and there is an increasing number of viewers from African nations.
I would like to thank all the Africans and Afro-Australians who kindly accepted to be interviewed for the benefits of our readers to show a multicultural Australia and their contributions. Remember African Australians are artists, business people, students, politicians, university professors, doctors, and more. They are part of all the walks of Australian life.
Last month on November 7th, Celebration of African Australians Inc., and in presence of Vedran Drakulic (CEO of Gandel Philanthropy), gave me the Community Initiative of the Year Award at Parliament of Victoria in Melbourne.
Thanks to all FFA interviewees, friends, cultural and community associations and Jodi Gray (FFA photographer) for all their support, their time and invaluable contribution to this community initiative.
May the year 2015 bring to African Australians and the wider Australian society peace, friendship and respect in a prosperous Australia.
The man-made differences and barriers put in between us are simply ridiculous because… it’s proven, we all come from Africa!
