World Vision Australia

Mimi Leung

I was inspired when my daughter and I went a multicultural playgroup which is aimed at supporting newly arrived mums and kids learn English & ease integration a little. The group leader told me how great it was that one of the kids started coming out of her shell that day cos she’d been so quiet and subdued til then. And how hard it was to see kids who just have no joy… that really struck me. Seeing the girl & Yoyo interact, knowing how hugely different their first experiences of life must be… I didn’t really know how to put those feelings into words and this drawing is an exploration of those fleeting thoughts and emotions, which I felt worked with the World Vision brief.
