Gulima Wahidi is a 22 year old Law and International Studies student at the University of Adelaide. Her father sought asylum in 2000 as a Hazara man being persecuted in Afghanistan, bringing his family, including Gulima, to reunite in Australia in 2005. Gulima is currently working at Jeffcott Chambers as a law clerk, and is heavily involved in advocating for the rights of refugees and people seeking asylum in the broader community. Gulima hopes to one day have a global impact with her work in helping those that are vulnerable.
Gulima has been part of ASRC’s digital campaign to block the refugee ban bill and the Refugee Council’s campaign on the right to family reunion as featured in the Sydney Morning Herald and The Guardian.
