Nisrine learnt to speak Arabic, French and English as a child and was able to learn Italian at school. Nisrine is a trainer working with Diversity Kids, which offers many practical programs working with educators and families to support the knowledge, skills and actions needed to support bilingualism and inclusion. She is a lecturer in speech pathology at ACU in Sydney, where she works with speech pathology students to develop the skills to enable positive bi-lingualism and communication so that they can participate and connect with culture.
