Storytelling & Speaking

Zongwe entered the child welfare system at the age of 8 and was a Crown Ward by 9. Her mother is one of the missing and murdered Indigenous women who lived in the downtown Eastside of Vancouver. Zongwe shares memories of her humble past and how she manages symptoms of complex PTSD due to years of childhood abuse.
