"I believe that the struggle against racism is a continuous effort. It provides the basis for the creation of a society where all are considered equal, and where diversity is as natural as breathing.
"I believe that change is possible. I believe in transformation and the potential to learn from stories and the experiences of others. As a writer, it is my job to share those stories to develop a society that fosters the understanding of people different to ourselves; to value all people regardless of race and colour as we value our own families."
