“I think one of the great things about being able to make Boa is I got to do a lot more research and dive into my heritage. I kind of took it for granted—my mom making dumplings when I was growing up. I went and visited Chinatown a lot more. And I also got to understand what it was like for my mom… Through making this short, I think I understand her a little bit better.”

"So my 2 cents worth on this? Was the situation racist? Well to a degree yes it was because if it was a white New Zealander, I highly doubt the receipt would say "whites". So why are Asians in NZ treated differently? Are they less Kiwi than whites there? Considering the group were locals shouldn't they be treated as Kiwis and not be called "Asians" - will we always be treated as perpetual foreigners, just because we all have black hair?"
“You don't have to be lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender or queer to walk #MumbaiPride today. You just need to celebrate love, freedom & the glorious democracy that India is!”

I think if we taught the history of, for example, empire and colonialism, I think we would understand much more why we are where we are, why certain countries are where they are.

So I think people would be a lot less prejudiced and a lot less hostile if we understood history better.
“He would often come and help me. In the past, he would always deliver my meals on the weekends and help me clean a bit before he left.
