Neil Josen

Neil Josen is studying Biomedical Science at Bond University with the aim of becoming a neuropsychologist. He wants to better understand not only how our bodies work, but how the brain and our minds work together to make us who we are.

Neil talks about his life growing up in the Philippines and how his education in Australia has been a transformative experience. In many ways this becomes a philosophical conversation about not only how we function biologically, but also the very nature of what it means to be human.

Jazmina Tarmidi

What happens when you reach a point in your life where you begin to question the belief system you’ve grown up with, one that was so strong that your idea of who you are was framed within those beliefs?

Jazmina Tarmidi moved with her family from Malaysia to Australia where they continued to practice their Islamic faith. In pursuing her dream to become a doctor at Griffith University Jazmina began to question the validity of that faith through scientific rationale. This is a courageous story of self-belief about who we really want to be and what we value most.

"This series is amazing.  I know both the people featured so far and yet I had no idea of their stories.  Both were captivating for different reasons, and both resonated with our family on a personal level.  It is interesting to have your perceptions of a situation challenged by others lived experiences.  I cannot wait for the next podcast!"
