昭儀

Born in Toronto to a newly immigrated family, my early childhood was spent in the lush humidity of Hong Kong until circumstances brought us back to Canada, where I called home.

In the cold of Canada, I existed in parts: Cantonese-speaking, poutine-loving, dumpling-eating girl.

The fragrance of my mother's cooking, my father's tattered photographs, their childhood stories and memories cultivated my curiosity and love for their past.

A world near and far.
