Dan’s Story

Dan was born in Chengdu, China.
She lived in China for 25 years and then moved to Sydney, leaving everything behind. She relocated to London for her job in 2018.
Her dad was bedridden for years, he don’t want Dan to stay with him but wish her travel as far as she can.
Dan became her dad’s eyes and ears, his window to the outside. She promised him she’ll take him to the beach when he gets better.
That day would never come...

-Dan, South Kensington
