Atika being a girl could not be educated in the small country village where they had lived because girls once they are over 10 years old are not allowed to leave the house unaccompanied. Atika’s 60-year old father leaves his family and makes his way to Australia in the hope of creating a better life for them. Before he leaves, he urges Attika to study diligently in the refugee camp while she waits for their acceptance into Australia. This is the story of a girl who given the opportunities of a free and democratic nation becomes a highly educated and grateful Australian.
