Two Journeys One World is a series of 6 podcasts with Jefry Yikwa, a refugee from West Papua, and Wayne Dyson, principal of Bridgeworks, bridge builder and adventurer.
An Inspiring Journey
There are many people who inspire me. Jefry is one out of the box.
Jefry’s journey took him through jungle mountains, rough seas and being shipwrecked on a remote Australian beach at the age of 16 with his little brother. Then he faced the challenges of a new life, education and work in Australia.
His parents had wanted a better life for him, away from the tyranny of Indonesian rule. So having a ‘better life’ was the success the boys were seeking. Starting from bare bones bottom (including not speaking English) now Jefry has a critical role as an aeronautical engineer for a major US company based in QLD. There are so many lessons to be learned by following Jefry’s journey.
Along the way his journey has led him to crossing paths with me. And I had the honour of mentoring him in the last 10 years. Owing to my life motto “Learn by doing” I fell in love with Jefry’s story.
We decided to put a podcast together – Two Journeys, One World. We have walked a mile (and more) in each other’s shoes!
Our journeys are so different and yet we are so similar in life’s lessons along the way.
