Emelyne, 18 years, Burundian She loves art and her parents as well. Since she doesn’t study, she spends most of her time practising art at Youth Rescue Organisation, located in the Nakivalee refugee settlement. Ever since she left Burundi and came to Uganda, it has not been easy for her and her family, but she is grateful that art has kept her mind focused and active. She wants to become a professional artist and become good at painting. She also wants to become an art teacher to pass on her knowledge to other people. Being part of the exhibition is a great opportunity for her to show her talent. Most people think that refugees, especially girls’ can’t do anything. However, she believes that when they see her painting, this mindset will change. She hopes to gain visibility for her works and make some sales to buy materials and continue painting. She advises young girls like her to learn skills like art to help them in the future.
