Get to know Ayman 

At birth, Ayman has dealt with many medical complications during his young years including two brain tumours and ongoing medical complications with a genetic disorder called Neurofibromatosis.


In dealing with these complications, Ayman has always been heavily involved in the community where he lives, Camp Quality, CanTeen (the Australian Organisation for Young People Living with Cancer) Police & Citizen’s Youth Centre (PCYC NSW) GLOBE Melbourne, JOY 94.9 and Victorian Aids Council. 


For Ayman, starting his journey of public speaking and sharing his story was second nature as it allows him to communicate with other individuals and organisations to bring their full potential to fruition. Working with people is Ayman’s biggest and most uplifting passion as this allows him to give back to those that have given to him during his younger years.


Born in Sydney to a Jordanian father and Italian mother and relocating to Coffs Harbour (Northern NSW) at the age of 3, living in a regional town for most of his life was a challenge not only for his medical conditions but also for access to services and organisations to support him during the time he was ‘coming out.’


Ayman has won a number of awards for his involvement in community work including:


  • Young Person of the Year (2005) – from Police & Citizen’s Youth Centre NSW

  • Young Citizen of the Year (2006) – Coffs Harbour City Council Auastralia Day Awards

  • Order of Australia Community Service Award (2006)


In 2013 after his second brain tumour operation, Ayman relocated to Melbourne, Victoria where he commenced working at Professionals Australia in their Outbound Call Centre, became involved in many organisations including JOY 94.9, Victorian Aids Council and GLOBE Melbourne as well as completing a Diploma of Business in 2014.


Ayman always lives life to the fullest and loves what he does and this shows in many of the things that he does.
