Time and time again, these top 3 BIG issues keep coming up in conversations I had with 100s & 100s of young refugees & migrants and their community leaders.


Most young refugee migrants came from such a tormented background that majority of their early life been life of survival.

This has cause a deep rooted feeling of unworthiness, lack of self trust and self believe. Most of them basically running on empty…feeling powerless


Most young refugee migrants never stop, take a piece of paper and map out exactly what their short-term, mid-term or long term goals are. Nobody took the time to show them how. So, they end up drifting and moving about aimlessly without any clear direction.


Although the prospect of coming into a new country is an exciting experience,

most young refugee migrants feel out of place in their new country. They feel lonely, confuse and misunderstood.


Discover what’s happening in the lives of our young refugees & migrants.

Over the years, I had conversations with 1000s of young refugee & migrants and spoken with many non-for-profit organisations and community leaders about the challenges our young refugee migrants are facing around career and mental health.

WHY I Created This Program:

Why I Feel So Stronger About this Program

This coaching & mentoring program is my way to response to that cry for help. The program is a byproduct of my own personal journey of overcoming to becoming into a powerful me. Nothing is theory. It’s based on 100% lived experience.
A personal growth journey that took me over a decade of obsessive daily pursuit. To give you some context, here’s a quick background on myself.


the creator.

Hello, I'm Mantist Oryem

I’m the creator of this program. 2009, I graduated with a diploma in community development.
I was inspired to make a different.
I wanted to learn how I could make a lasting impact in the lives of young people in our community. Particularly in the lives of our young refugees & migrants…something very close to my heart.


My Story:

I came in Australia back in 2004 as a refugee migrant with nothing but a suitcase and a dream. Sort of like a backpacker but with zero money. And nothing was going for me. Looking back, until I was 25, my life was really a nightmare. I had zero money. I couldn’t speak any English. I had zero marketable skill. Terrible self image. And almost next to nothing self confidence. In a word, I was right at the bottom of all citizens. And the only way forward was up.

Rewind back.

I was born in South Sudan…a war torn country for generations. I spent 10 years of my childhood in refugee camps…barely surviving. Would I eat today? Would I be safe today type thing. That was my daily state of mind. Raise by a single mum with no father power. My father died in action when I was only 2…fighting for what I’ve been fighting for basically most of my life FREEDOM. And that’s my background. As I think back, nobody could have guess…not even myself that one day I would be a success.
