My name is Shawali, I’m aged 41, and a Hazara refugee. I’m on a Safe Haven Enterprise Visa (SHEV) and have been living in Perth for 9 years. I currently work as a plasterer.
My favourite way to relax is by fishing, playing volleyball and holidays. My favourite place to spend time in Perth is City Beach.
I miss my family, my wife and four children. Permanency would mean I can relax, have hope. It is everything. I can bring my family here, open my own business and buy a house.
