Speaker, Simon Astifo came to Australia from Syria about 24 years ago. One job was working in a bakery for 9 years, making mouth watering pies, croissants, quiches, etc.
Now, he is the owner of Appetito, a local restaurant in Carrum Downs.
Together with his wife and family he has really embraced life in Australia and is thankful for the opportunities to get ahead.
Simon was quite touched on hearing about our recent ROMAC evening that he gave the club a cheque for the cause.
