Elite Zahinda, a refugee in Australia from Democratic Republic of Congo


Elite is a refugee from Democratic Republic of the Congo. This is what freedom means to her:

“For me, freedom is the feeling that I am safe. I feel safe in Australia. 

“I can be myself and express myself without facing any consequences from authorities, society, or any individual. My freedom is freedom of speech without fear of repression. 

“Congolese are famous for their love for music, and I love to be able to participate in community events enjoy our music because music connects us.”
