I would say that my first introduction to June was serendipitous, as it was a time when I needed to feel that there are opportunities for writing on diaspora experiences that are not necessarily academic or literary.
Working with June for WQ’s Diaspora edition was very special for me, as she encouraged personal and intimate storytelling.
After this first experience, we have continued to work on another diaspora-focused project that just highlights her beautiful approach to the way we share stories. June is highly organised and very present. I am looking forward to working with her on more projects in the future.
