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


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

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. I have freedom of speech without fear of repression.

Congolese are famous for their love for music, and I love being free to participate in community events and enjoy our music because music connects us.
