[School of Hard Knocks] Interview with TwentyFifteen for School of Hard Knocks

Q : So we are supposed to believe that a Chinese girl from a middle-class family can understand the problems faced by a group of people from a totally different background? 

A : I don’t claim to know everything, but I’m learning more about them everyday. Mel calls me her “Chinese sister with Indian attitude”. In some ways, it feels like I have found my tribe, like I belong here with them. I’m not quite sure how to explain this, but I think if I were to do a story about people from a privileged background, I wouldn’t be able to pull it off. 


In this interview with Twentyfifteen.sg, I share my thoughts about documenting Mel and company - how I started, why I started and the journey thus far. If you wanna know more, you can come by my book launch on 4th March, 7.30pm at *SCAPE treetop. It’d be fun!
