Youth Award: Ibrahim Taha

Youth Award: Ibrahim Taha

Ibrahim Taha is an Australian Muslim of Lebanese descent. He has become an active member of his local community participating in not-for-profit organisations. Ibrahim began his contribution to his local community as a 14-year-old, when he was nominated by his local MP to speak on behalf of youth at the YMCA NSW Youth Parliament program. He raised awareness about drug and alcohol abuse, youth unemployment and domestic violence. Ibrahim is a recent HSC All-Round excellence achiever who campaigned within his school for multiculturalism, harmony and dialogue. He achieved this by leading Multicultural Day events, hosting Iftar Dinners and facilitating workshops with interfaith organisations.

Ibrahim completed high school with a reputable legacy at Homebush Boys High School and has continued to remain active, as a leader in the community. Ibrahim currently attends the University of Sydney and mentors numerous young Australian Muslims, instilling in them the idea that their religious faith and Australian nationality coalesce into an identity they should be proud of.
