Brief Explanation

This advertisement chronicles the real-life story of Western Sydney University graduate, Deng Thiak Adut. From a child soldier in the Sudanese Civil war to becoming a leading member of the Sudanese community and refugee lawyer in the suburbs of Western Sydney, Deng Adut's story is a phenomenal achievement of one man's dedication to helping others less fortunate in the face of great adversity. The story is about unlocking human potential - triumph against the odds; winning when the mainstream says it’s impossible; victory that is sweeter because it’s tougher to achieve.
