E3: Adorate Mizero talks to us about her lived experiences as a former refugee youth

Hailing from Burundi, Adorate Mizero has been an Auckland local for much of her life. She spends her time balancing community work and creative projects. In the work she makes and has contributed to, Adorate is focused on critically and passionately exploring the effects of racism, marginalisation, representation and identity politics. Some of her work and contributions include written reviews, producing short documentary videos and films (Loading Docs: One Year On, Third Culture Minds Series, NZHRC: That’s Us), public speaking (KSPW, NZHRC), academic research (Disaster communications with resettled refugees) and community initiatives and programmes.
