Patrick - Catering ASRC

I’m a psychologist by profession, so I want to get back into that field.

I love working at ASRC catering, I feel at home here. Working with other people seeking asylum is great because I feel like we are in the same boat. We share the same problems, so when I talk about an issue with someone they can understand because they’re probably going through the same thing.

Asylum seekers always have problems (laughs). My dream is to get back into working in psychology and to one day help other people seeking asylum. Right now, I’m saving money and trying to get a scholarship so I can study at university again.

Football (soccer) is the best sport in the world, obviously. AFL is pretty good too, I was supporting North Melbourne but they were losing every time so I switched to Essendon!

Food is good (laughs). Everyone needs it, even politicians and doctors. Taste is good, if food tastes better that’s great!
