These are the stories of who we are. Australian Story presents unique tales that provide aninsight into Australian life with all its complexities and challenges.
Mojgan Shamsalipoor came to Australia in 2012, aged 17, after fleeing terrible abuse and trauma in her home country, Iran.
The young asylum seeker found sanctuary in Brisbane, living in the community while her application for a protection visa was assessed.
She fell in love and married a young Iranian refugee, Milad Jafari, and attended a supportive high school where she regained her self-confidence and became a popular student.
But her dreams of a happier future came crashing down.
When Australian Story first told of the challenges Mojgan faced, in July last year (Gone Girl, Jul 25), she was in immigration detention with no prospect of release.
A lot has changed since then. Mojgan has been released back into the community on a bridging visa, but it will expire this month and her future remains uncertain.
Blindsided by her mother's shock suicide, newspaper columnist Nikki Gemmell's search for answers takes her down the rabbit hole of the euthanasia debate.
Looks like something went completely wrong!
But don't worry - it can happen to the best of us,
- and it just happened to you.
