Congratulations to Dulwich High School student, Kathy Nguyen, for receiving a 2022 International Student of the Year Award!

Every year, this prestigious award is presented to international students all around NSW who have made outstanding contributions to their communities.

In the three years since Kathy arrived in Sydney from Vietnam in 2019, she has been a powerful voice and role model in the Inner West. In 2021, Kathy became School Captain of Dulwich High School. In this role, she organised many important fundraising events for different charities, including Vouch for Lismore, the World's Greatest Shave, and Black Rainbow.

Kathy has been so generous to share her cultural experiences with other young people around the Inner West, but has also ensured to lift up other international students in her community. Kathy has been a guest speaker for the University of Sydney's Vietnamese International Students Society and collaborated with SET Education to assist other Vietnamese international students in their study abroad.

Thank you Kathy for your excellence as a role model in our community - what a well-deserved award!
