I normally use this platform to talk about living in Italy but I thought I'd take this opportunity to post about something that is also just as close to my hearts as pasta is- being proud of your origins.
If there's something that being a straniera in Italy has taught me it is that we are all blessed in Canada to be able to embrace our roots and share a diversity of cultures with those around us. I'm a proud Chinese-Canadian which means I love dim sum as much as poutine but I wouldn't want to identify as anything else. With the pending release of film adaptations of the bestsellers Crazy Rich Asians and To All The Boys I've Loved Before, I thought it the right time to do a *virtual standing ovation*.
