On Resistance and Dreaming

"Originally this was a longer format piece photographed and written amidst the Covid lockdown but I wanted to adapt it in a different way. I share it with the hope that my words can prompt some re-thought and empowerment for the people of Brampton. That before we complain about our city, may we bask in its resilience. May we bask in our communal joy and ability to resist assimilation. In the unique experiences we hold, growing up with so much sustained culture and language and food. In the ways that we are also so fortunate. That dreamers are born here."
