Iranian refugee Mojgan Shamsalipoor finally received her high school certificate on November 16 after missing her graduation last year because she was in immigration detention.
Shamsalipoor arrived in Australia by boat in 2012 and attended Yeronga State High School.
She lived in the Brisbane Immigration Transit Accommodation Centre (BITAC) but was suddenly removed to the Darwin detention centre last August.
After an active campaign for her release, on September 21 she and brother Hossein, were released on bridging visas. She plans to study and eventually become a nurse.
