I came to Australia as a child refugee from Kampala, Uganda in 1994. The sacrifices my mother made and her tenacity enabled me and my seven siblings to flourish in our new country, and she taught me about tempered feminine strength. I earned my degree in early childhood studies and have become an advocate for diversity and human rights. I dream of one day establishing a foundation that empowers refugee youths with confidence and understanding, and to help them adapt to environmental change.
