Sakina arrived in Australia in 2015 with her two daughters.

They fled from Afghanistan because they were a persecuted minority from the Hazara people.  Sakina was also targeted because there was no man in her family.

Sakina is grateful for the opportunities her girls have here in Australia. Here, they can play sport and go to school.

Sakina and her girls have lived in Toowoomba and now Brisbane, where Sakina works at Bunnings.

Sakina hopes that her story inspires people so that they feel that they can achieve things, ask for help and realise that nothing is impossible.

Sakina's Story is one of four documentary films created in partnership with Multicultural Australia and Griffith Film School, featuring the extraordinary journeys of people from a refugee background, who now call Brisbane their home.

REIMAGINE Virtual Events premieres these documentaries to an online audience as part of our Cultural Connections Cinema program, featuring storytelling and events that enrich our understanding of the many people and cultures that call this place home.
