Artist statement: Zufi, is a 22 year-old actor from Canberra. She was born in Ethiopia and adopted by her mum and dad when she was five months old, along with her brothers. Their adoption story is a happy one – something that Zufi, as an Ambassador for Adopt Change, knows is not always the case and is grateful for.
Zufi believes adoption should truly follow the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and act in the best interests of every child. Every child deserves to have a permanent, nurturing home where they feel safe and belong, regardless of who they are. As an ambassador for Future Women, professionally and personally, Zufi aims to ensure no female gets left behind.
