Sara Mansour

Sara Mansour is a lawyer, poet, co-founder and director of Bankstown Poetry Slam. Sara uses her art and passion for justice to empower others through poetry.

Sara Mansour, the oldest of eight children, was born into a traditional Lebanese family. She would attend Arabic school each week, learning and memorising the Qu’ran. At the time it was unveiled, it was seen as a collection of poetry, which allowed Sara to feel reconnected with a part of herself when she started performing poetry.

In high school, Sara’s love and interest in rap and hip-hop were born from trying to fit in with the people around her and reconcile her place in Australia as "other". However, this leads to her developing her interest in writing poetry and what would result in co-founding the Bankstown Poetry Slam.

Sara most recently has co-founded her own company Alepha where she hopes to engage with diverse writers, speakers, thinkers and teachers in meaningful opportunities.

Sara joins Joey on Out of the Box to discuss being raised by migrant parents in Australia, the Christchurch attacks and how she plans to make a difference to society.

Eddie Woo

Eddie Woo is an Australian mathematician best known for his YouTube Channel focused on explanations of math problems, live from the classroom.

Eddie’s parents placed a lot of importance on education, as they had packed up and left Malaysia to give their children better prospects. So when Eddie told them he wanted to be a teacher, they weren’t exactly thrilled.

However, having over half a million subscribers on his YouTube channel and a ‘master teacher’ with the NSW Department of Education, Eddie’s parents are more than supportive. Eddie is not only teaching students to love mathematics, but he is also influencing the role of the teacher in the classroom.

Eddie joins Joey on Out of the Box to discuss fitting into Australian culture, his struggles at school and his philosophy to teaching.
