Are you living in between cultures? You have multiple ‘homes’? Join my journey to find a sense of belonging in between cultures. Let's be friends!

My name is Naya. I was born and raised in Seoul, Korea until my parents decided to immigrate to a small town in BC when I was 14 years old. My journey as a ‘cultural inbetweener’ came with a constant battle of choosing between two cultures, two homes and two identities.

As a student working on a thesis project for Industrial Design BA, I spent countless hours on honest conversations on this topic of living in-between cultures. No matter how alone I felt growing up, I now know that I am not alone in living ‘Inbetween Cultures’. In fact, that there is whole bunch of you guys!

I invite you to join an evening full of sushi-making and cultural conversations. You will learn how to roll sushi from me (a former sushi chef), make new friends and share your unique stories. I have designed a very special workshop in collaboration with the Health and Wellness Centre at OCAD University and they will provide a nice and safe place for us to have the best evening. They are also sponsoring us with basic fresh vegs but please bring any special sushi ingredient and impress us with your preparation! I am so excited to meet you all.
