Sympathy for the Dandelion (Journeys Festival International, Portsmouth, 2018)

Over a cup of chai and cakes at Portsmouth Guildhall, I shared my stories as a child boat refugee among a group of diverse multi-cultural audience. Their curiosity and interest had made me realised the power of words as a medium to express and documenting difficult and delicate stories, such as the journeys made by refugee and asylum seekers.
