"New Humans of Australia" is a Facebook page and project celebrating the voices of refugees and migrants. View this post on Facebook Facebook: NewHumansOfAustralia It's been running for about a month and aims to show the positive stories behind refugees that aren't always explored in mainstream media. View this post on Facebook Facebook: NewHumansOfAustralia The founder of the project, Nicola, told BuzzFeed News that she got the idea after working with a lot of refugees within the Australian government's Adult Migrant English Program. "I got to hear a lot of amazing stories. At the same time, the stories about refugees coming through the mainstream media were often negative.""I've always been a huge fan of "Humans of New York", and was inspired to try the same style with the people I was working with." Nicola's favourite person to talk so so far has been Roda, a refugee who arrived in Sydney eight years ago after a long journey across Africa.

Nicola is currently unfunded and hopes to apply for a grant in the near future so she can spend more time doing what she loves. Facebook: NewHumansOfAustralia Like "New Humans of Australia" here.
