Journey From an Ordinary Papua New Guinea ‘Village Kid’ to an Award-Winning PhD Scholar. This is the true story of Dr. Bal Kama growing up as a simple village kid in the Gumine District of Simbu Province.

From Papua New Guinea ‘Village Kid’ to Award-Winning PhD Scholar.

Dr Bal Kama has a truly remarkable story. A story that inspires hopes and dreams for many young Papua New Guineans who dare to dream big. It is a story not only of hopes and dreams but handwork and commitment.

Dr Kama's story begins at Gumine District in Simbu Province, PNG, as published by Australian National University (ANU) website.

“Life as a village kid was filled with adventure, but also limited in opportunities. Despite being subsistence villagers, my parents encouraged my siblings and I to pursue further education

“One of my elder brothers, John, brought me to Australia for senior high school when he got a job here. I am grateful to him for his sacrifices. I went on to study a double degree in Bachelor of Laws (Hons)/Arts (Politics/International Relations) at the University of Canberra (UC).” he stated.

University life was difficult financially and he had to work two to three casual jobs to meet his university fees. With support from kind individuals, he managed to complete his scholarship at UC Law School.

Dr Kama has been named the 2020 winner of the Hank Nelson Memorial Award by ANU College of Asia and the Pacific for submitting the best PhD thesis internationally on PNG.papua new guinea clothing, papua new guinea traditional clothing, papua new guinea clothes, papua new guinea fashion, papua new guinea information, png tapa cloth sale, png tapa cloth design,	png meri blouse pattern, papua new guinea tapa cloth sale, papua new guinea city, geographical location papua new guinea, geographical features papua new guinea, papua new guinea geographical features, where papua new guinea located, papua new guinea location map, papua new guinea physical features, papua new guinea natural features, papua new guinea climate map, papua new guinea women photos, papua new guinea pictures people, new guinea people photos, papua new guinea women tribe, papua new guinea photos, papua new guinea tribal women, cannibal tribes papua new guinea, papua new guinea news update, papua new guinea news today, latest news papua new guinea, current news papua new guinea, breaking news papua new guinea, current job vacancies papua new guinea, current events papua new guinea, papua new guinea breaking news, papua new guinea local news, national newspaper papua new guinea daily, national newspaper papua new guinea, national newspaper png daily, national newspaper png today, national news png, png national news online, png national news updates, png national news, png national ews today, png politics news, png local news today, png latest news online, post courier png latest news, png local news, png todays news, png breaking news latest, png today news, png latest news updates, png latest news update this week, png loop news update today, png latest breaking news blogs, png latest breaking news, png emtv news online, png newspaper online, png news online, png emtv news today, national news png online, papua new guinea government type, papua new guinea government structure, papua new guinea government website, papua new guinea government system, papua new guinea form government, when was papua new guinea founded, papua new guinea a commonwealth country, papua new guinea what country, where papua new guinea located map, where papua new guinea located world map, papua new guinea location world map, where papua new guinea world map, where new guinea located map,png national newspaper paper today,today png national newspaper, png national newspaper, the png national newspaper online, png national newspaper online, national newspaper png news, national newspaper png news, national newspaper png latest news, national newspaper png online, the national newspaper png online, png national newspaper paper today, png national newspaper today, national newspaper png today, the png national newspaper online, today png national newspaper, the national newspaper png online, papua new guinea, Dr. bal Ninkama
