Meet the Canberra-raised actor who is sharing her Aussie adoption story to ensure no child is left behind.

By Natalie Cornish

Zufi Emerson is an actor from Canberra. Born in Ethopia before being adopted by her mum and dad as a five-month-old along with her younger brothers, her Aussie adoption story is a happy one. Something she knows is not always the case. Now an ambassador for Adopt Change Australia and Future Women, she is a passionate campaigner for assisting adoption change and hopes to one day share her story at the UN. Here, Zufi shares her love for dad rock, her hopes for the future and what she’s doing to ensure no child is left behind.

Future Women’s founder, Helen McCabe spoke to me about Future Women. Knowing it wasn’t lighthearted, nor all talk, I was on board as an ambassador immediately. I liked that there was nothing like it, where content was based online, and I loved FW’s devotion to sharing many perspectives. The HerVote event was one of my favourites for this reason – women from different parties sharing a stage pre-election.

You’ve hit the glass ceiling. And our paywall.

Help us smash it by becoming a Future Woman for as little as $4 a month.
