We are a diverse group of people. We speak many languages. We don't always feel represented. But we share one thing in common. We are drawn to stories of resilience. The kind of stories that can disrupt or inspire us. Connect with us and move us. Teach us and empower us. So look with us through a kaleidescope of stories that capture our current moment.  This episode features conversations with three inspiring people who came to Australia as refugees.
