Still from 'Home?' by Anne Hsuyin and Abdul 'Min' Muhaimin

Home? by Anne Hsuyin and Abdul 'Min' Muhaimin

"Growing up, I was always told that my country didn't have the right opportunities for me, that I would need to find a home away from home to thrive or wither otherwise.

For years, I did my best in school so I could leave my old home – and then for years, I did my best to build a new home for myself here in Melbourne. Is here really home? Will I get to stay here?

Home? is a snapshot of the emptiness, loneliness, and uncertainty that surrounds my experience of migration and creating a space for myself as an international student."

"Ahead of the Curve has given me a platform to tell my story as an international student trying to create a space for myself here in Melbourne. To have my voice heard and this part of my identity acknowledged is freeing and validating."

Presented as part of MAV’s Ahead of the Curve program.
