    The Loving Podcast x AKONI : From Africa to Australia (Mimona Abdalla)

    The Loving Podcast x AKONI : From Africa to Australia (Mimona Abdalla)

    Mimona (Meymuna) Abdalla was seven years old when she arrived in Australia. For a girl who grew up in a small hut in a remote village in Sudan, Australia’s beauty amazed her and the 
    opportunities made her feel invincible. But upon attending school, she was faced with a new challenge. The food she brought to school was ‘smelly’ to the other children, the colour of her skin was questioned and the language she spoke brought about confusion. She knew she had a 
    deep and rich culture, and wanted more than anything to share it with the people she met.  But it took her time to find her space, and  she is now more than ready to talk.

    In this episode of The Loving Podcast, Genna Chanelle Hayes speaks with Mimona (Meymuna) Abdalla about the differences between the migrant journey and the  refugees/asylum seeker journey, and integrating into Australian society from Africa as a child.
