Get to know the next guest in our Summerset Sessions interview series:

Abbas Nazari is a former Afghan refugee who, as a small child, fled the Taliban with his family in 2001. He was also one of 400 asylum seekers who were rescued by the container ship, the MV Tampa, and then held offshore for weeks after being denied refuge in Australia. Happily Abbas and his family were resettled in NZ, where they have made a home and thrived.

Although a story tinted with sadness and impossible choices, Abbas tells it in such a way that is humbling, heart-warming and surprisingly funny — it is an interview that will leave you feeling inspired. Join us as Jude Dobson chats to Abbas and shares his incredible journey. Not one to be missed!
