Ayub Abdi-Barre


Ayub Abdi-Barre came to Australia as a six-year-old refugee from Somalia. Placed in foster care, he later became homeless. Now living in a share house in Carlton North, he’s happy to call Melbourne home. Passionate about social justice, he works as a political advisor on topics such as the Australian–African community and the environment, and assists people from low socioeconomic situations to find safe housing. He’s obsessed with sports (watching or playing) and will strike up a conversation about climate change if the chance arises.
