2014 started with a burst of inspiration!
With all the work that I do, there has to be a life message or
my work has to benefit others, hence my new project
– Don’t be a LOSER campaign #racismItstopsWithme
After reading reports of bullying and racism
on buses and online, I felt that there’s a great need
to educate children, at a grass roots level, in order
to stop these incidences from occurring.
I felt inspired to write an awareness campaign using
The Wong Side of Life puppets and produced a catchy
music video, under the direction of Pearl Tan.
We’ll be launching the video at Darlington
Public School on the 20th of June. Here I’ll not
only be showing the video for the first time but I’l also
be doing a motivational speech about my personal
experiences of racism & bullying and workshopping
I’ll then be touring schools in Sydney, Perth and Melbourne.
I feel that the more schools and venues this video is shown to,
there will be less racism and bullying. Instead a sense of
understanding, tolerance and respect for others in our
community will grow.
This is a project I’m passionate about and it gives me great joy to
make a difference for the next generation.
