Jim Kari is in his second year of residency at the Port Moresby General Hospital.

Muslim model Mariah Idrissi breaking down barriers in fashion world

She did not know it then, but that was to be a turning point in her life.

The woman was Coralie Rose, a street casting director who hunts out fresh new talent among the crowds of ordinary people in this huge city.

"I come from a mixed race family. And when I was growing up there were very few people of colour or mixed race families on TV and it's always something I've wanted to see more of."
