WHAT DID YOU BRING? IS AN INSPIRING COLLECTION OF PERSONAL STORIES BEHIND THE LITTLE TREASURES HIDDEN IN THE LUGGAGE OF IMMIGRANTS WHO CHOSE CANADA AS THEIR NEW HOME.

PHOTOGRAPHS, LETTERS, TOYS AND OBJECTS OF MANY KINDS, LOADED WITH SENTIMENTAL VALUE, ALL ACT AS ETHEREAL STRANDS BETWEEN LIVES LEFT BEHIND AND A NEW DAWN ON CANADIAN SOIL.

As I lived in three cities since my move to Canada, these candles remind me of the depth and beauty of the Arabic language, my faith, and my Arab heritage. 

To me, candles signify hope.
