As a woman with Asian heritage born in Africa now living in Canada, Suli Adams finds herself asking, where is home?

“I was born in Kenya, as were my parents. I arrived in Canada as an immigrant in 1975, sponsored by a cousin who arrived as a refugee from Uganda in 1972. How did I and so many others across East Africa come to call Canada their new home? It’s a complicated story.”
