Tell us about your photo
This was my first time to learn how to take photos and to get the right frame. This photo was taken in Sunshine, in a central place. It is the busiest place I experience here in Australia, as I live close by and can walk here for shopping; I don’t need to go anywhere else.
What do you love about your local community?
It is a good place for a new start. When I first arrived, my children studied here at university; it’s convenient, but also people here are from many places. Sometimes I go shopping and discover new vegetables I have never seen before; I wait to see who will buy them and I ask them how to cook it.
What does cultural diversity mean to you?
The culture here is very rich; because of cultural diversity we can do everything the way we used to in my culture back home.
