Anthea’s Experience

I was young and heartless […] and my mother was very upset.

Migrating to Australia was an adventure for Anthea—but for her mother it was the end of world.

The counterpoint to the excitement of arrival that many young migrants experienced was the devastation felt by their family members who saw them off and watched them depart.

Follow the rest of Anthea’s story, and many others like her, in the Full Circle Podcast series.
