East Coast roots

Toronto is one of the most multicultural cities in the world. It’s something that I admittedly miss about that city. Being born and raised in a multicultural family had its unique ups and downs and made for a sometimes difficult time “fitting in” as a child. Well, since May is Asian heritage month, I thought I’d open the site up and put out a call for East Coast Guest Posts on the theme of “East Coast Roots.”

What’s your story? Where did you come from? Are you an East Coaster through and through? If so, what does that even mean? What are your traditions, if any? Do you have some fabulous recipes that you want to share?

If you’re interested in sharing your story (whether your ancestors have lived here for generations or not), please e-mail me at kimberly.aliasgrace [at] gmail [dot] com or DM me on Twitter. I’ll post the stories at the end of the month.

[P.S. Don’t forget that the Nova Scotia Multicultural Festival takes place from June 25-28 at Alderney Gate. Mark your calendars for days of yummy food and wonderful entertainment from around the world, right here in the city!]
