The story of Deng Thiak Adut that everyone in our country needs to know.
Deng Adut’s story begins the day he was taken away from his mother and forced to fight for the Sudanese rebels.
He was just six years old at the time. When he was 12 years old, he was shot in the back, rescued by UN workers and brought to Australia.
Adut’s story is part of a series of ads for Western Sydney University (formerly the University of Western Sydney).The “Unlimited” campaign highlights the incredible stories of some of the university’s graduates.
Other ads tell the stories of Meissa Chiu who moved to Sydney from Darwin after Cyclone Tracy hit in 1974.
Chiu went onto graduate the Western Sydney University and become the Director of the Smithsonian Institution Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.
