In the two years since he came to Sydney from Hanoi, Vietnam, Duy Quang has become a highly respected leader in the local community. An avid volunteer, the 16-year-old Homebush Boys High School student has earned praise for his compassionate and giving nature, and become an exceptional role model for other students. Duy Quang teaches English to younger students, assists Year 7 students via the Peer Support Program, and has been instrumental in the recently formed Social Justice Club, which sees students advocate and fundraise for important issues such as gender equality and refugee rights. The broader Homebush community has benefited from Duy Quang’s participation in the NSW State Conference for UN Youth Australia, his volunteer work at the local Salvos Store, and his work with the Interact Club, a school-based Rotary club that helps with community fundraising initiatives. In his spare time, the Year 10 student loves to practice his art and photography. “I think every small moment in life is captivating, and I want to capture them,” he says.
