Nadia and Yvette Niyubushobozi


Nadia and Yvette are sisters from Burundi, East Africa, and have lived in Shepparton since late 2020.

Nadia is a hard-working student currently completing her Year 12 studies. She is keen to create a better future for young people of colour with her commitment to learning and sharing her experiences to inform, guide and inspire others. Nadia hopes to pursue a career in biomedicine.

Yvette works as a school multicultural liaison officer and is also studying to become a nurse. Having seen how language and cultural barriers have a detrimental effect people’s health and well-being, she is determined to help people from all walks of life access accurate, timely, reliable information and services.
