Having grown up in a multi-cultural family, I was always checking the ‘Other’ box.


Throughout life I’ve questioned many of our social norms and societal expectations, being amazed that we often carry on traditions without knowing where they come from or asking what they may perpetuate.


Knowing that progress takes time, and believing that different perspectives provide a better understanding of people and the world we live in, I enjoy writing about what I learn from others and also my own experiences.


Selecting the ‘Other’ answer will seemingly always be my choice in life, because I’m interested in knowing what else I may not be considering by choosing only from the answers presented.
