Speaker Profiles

Akram Azimi

Akram was born in war-torn Afghanistan. With no choice, and only the clothes on their back, Akram and his family fled, leaving everything behind. Fortunately, Akram’s family won something of a global lottery: they received a visa to Australia in 1999.

With the help of his amazing high school teachers, Akram overcame his disadvantaged background and became his school’s top academic student and was elected head boy. At university, he studied law (hons), science and sociology (hons) and is currently doing his PhD.

For his community service and mentoring work, Akram was named 2013 Young Australian of the Year. Since 2007, Akram has taught law, human anatomy, neurobiology, sociology, epistemology, community service and writing at three universities and two high schools.

Overall, he has formally taught for 2000+ hours and mentored young people pro bono for 3000+ hours.

Ashleigh Nelson

Hailing from the small country town, Wagin, Ashleigh Nelson played 205 games for the Australian Womens Hockey team otherwise known as The Hockeyroos. During this time she won two Commonwealth Games Gold Medals, Silver at World Cup and attended the London Olympics.

Although she experienced the highs of being athlete she also had to battle through the lows including missing out on two Olympic Games, two knee reconstructions and battling with being happy in a competitive environment day in day out. Through her experience Ashleigh was able to become mentally resilient and now attempts to put her learning into practice as radio producer, hockey commentator and Occupational Therapist.

Paris Mitchell

Paris Mitchell is a Motivational Speaker & Musician who has overcome major challenges to turn his life around.

Through Speaking, Music, Videos and other creative mediums he works with individuals and organisations to develop strategies for transformation and to inspire and motivate people to see the potential that they hold within themselves for massive positive change.

He has been featured in The West Australian, Channel 9 and in Business News amongst an array of other media outlets.
