I joined the Race and Culture Network as culture, race and people have always interested me and I’m intrigued by different cultures, customs and behaviours. This probably stems from my own nomadic life, having been born in Zambia and then moving to the UK when I was about 6 years old.
Initially we first lived in Wolverhampton, followed by Leicester for about eight years and then to London, where I lived until I got married and moved to Bristol.
From my original place of birth to Bristol the distance is 7,917km (4,919 miles). Hence I have been exposed to a variety of people and traditions. All cultures and traditions are important and by learning or knowing more about them it can dispel myths and misunderstanding.
