Sonali Jayasundra in conversation

Sonali Jayasundra migrated from Sri Lanka to the Goulburn Valley with her husband and children.

Identity is an important issue for people migrating to a local area for many reasons, says Sonali Jayasundra of the Ethnic Council of Shepparton.

While settlement and integration have had its challenges, Sonali explains that the greatest challenge was to form an identity of her own in the local community. During this conversation with Frank Purcell, we hear of the unseen bridges an immigrant family has to cross to form an identity and take up life in ordinary in the local community.
