Tell us about your photo

The picture was taken in Sunshine, near the station. I like the many different colours and the handshake in this image. The handshake a sign of friendship. It’s how you greet someone when you haven’t seen each other for a long time. It’s like different cultures coming together.

What do you love about your local community?

I like this area. There are good people and services, and there are many different things to do.

What does ‘everybody belongs’ mean to you?

Some people have been here for a long time, and some just came, they are just new. I’m just new, but I think everyone should belong.
