In August 2016, I’ll be celebrating the 1 year anniversary of writing Multicultural Me. I’m going on this tour to read my book, share my stories and tell children how I use cartoons and comedy to make new friends.
I wish to show kids that if I can make friends anywhere in Australia and the world, then they can too!
Why the United Arab Emirates?
One of my book characters is Amina, inspired by the Muslim children and adults who have kindly shared their stories with me. We always have warm, respectful conversations and now I’m keen to visit the Middle East to learn from children there. I’m planning to give a reading of my book to children and their parents at a local library in Dubai.
