Their candles of generosity should never be blown out in my hands. Let the light continue to shine through future generations.
As a cultural fruit-salad who traverses the world, I have lived experience of being a minority and often isolated from familiar cultural signs and privileges.
I have also met fellow travellers who have become lifelong mentors and support along the way.
If there is a lesson we have all learned through the global pandemic, it is that we are all interconnected humans, and that collectively, we can rebuild and make the world a better place.
