SUFIA is originally from Bangladesh, and was educated there, gaining a Master’s Degree in Science. She came out to Australia for an arranged marriage. Unfortunately, the marriage did not work out, and she was trapped in an abusive relationship for 14 years. After much pain and personal struggle Sufia slowly put her life back together. She has brought up two beautiful boys who are now at university, and has done further study here herself. She has benefited a great deal from Rosemary’s programs and support. Sufia is now working as a volunteer with the Bangladeshi Women’s Association and with Metro Assist in Bankstown.
