Nomzamo Mbatha to Give TED Talk at Refugee Camp

She constantly outdoes herself. Goals.

Golden girl, Nomzamo Mbatha doesn’t seem to take breaks! Following her emotional graduation earlier this year, television personality announced on her Twitter account that she’ll be giving a TED Talk at the Kakuma refugee camp in Kenya on 9 June 2018. On sharing the news she wrote, ‘Incredibly honored to have been chosen as one of the speakers at the FIRST EVER to take place at a Refugee Camp. This is a Global first and so my heart beams with excitement and gratitude.

Consistently Outdoing Herself

As the UNHCRโ€™s LuQuLuQu campaign advocate, this will not be the first time Nomzamo will be visiting the camp. She’s proudly documented her first trip to the camp on a UN Refugee Agency familiarization mission before, where she was set to engage with refugees in different locations in the country.

Speaking on her mission trip press statement she said: ‘I always advocate the importance of taking on a cause, endorsement, any role for that matter, from a position of alignment with my personal mission. The plight of our displaced African brothers and sisters has been one close to my heart to support and lend my voice to โ€“ I believe, making the personal connection is key to fully champion their plight. I have to speak and action not just from a place of understanding, but of experience as well. I am filled with expectation and excitement for my two-day stay at the Kakuma Refugee Camp.’

As a crusader, Nomzamo Mbatha’s image is of resilience and being an advocate for forcibly displaced refugees from around the continent, her role marries perfectly with what Mbatha stands for. The LuQuLuQu campaign challenges and seeks to transform the perceptions of the African refugee and drives an undeniable truth: borders do not separate us.

Forever rooting for you, Nomzamo.
