Close to children and grandchildren,
but they do not live nearby
Amon came to Australia 50 years ago. Living by himself, he still has his children and grandchildren in his life.
Together with other migrants from his country, Amon came to Australia in his early 20s and went straight into employment as a manual labourer. Working together with other migrants for most of his adult life, he did have time to improve his English skills. As a result, Amon relies strongly on his ethnic community and tries his best to ‘catch up’ and integrate with the broader society. He gets by speaking English in public settings but prefers to watch the global news in his own language.
