The Book contains 40 articles in English translated from respective Chinese articles CASS published over the past 8 years in the local Chinese media, presenting life stories about Chinese migrants settling and adapting into their new life in Australia, reflecting the struggles they faced, the hurdles they overcome and the laughter they experienced.
We believe that the sharing of these life stories with people from other communities will foster mutual understanding and acceptance amongst people of different backgrounds in our society, promoting community harmony and social cohesion.
“Harmony, mutual respect & understanding are what make multiculturalism in Australia a success story. It is through the sharing of stories found in such books of individual migrants, about their journeys, struggles and accomplishments that these principles are fostered and community harmony and social cohesion achieved.”
Mr Jack Passaris OAM, Community Leader
