[Sharon Zhai]: Something about Australia is that you have everything!

I am Sharon Zhai. I am an opera singer.

I am Australian but my origin is Chinese.

I really don’t feel that I am minority.

As opera singers I think our work,is already very Multicultural.

Knowing that I am Chinese. I wouldn’t feel alone if I am singing in Australia.

People are from everywhere. All Cultures and Nationalities here feel at home.

That is the thing that’s amazing and unique. Because everyone can come from different countries,

different religions and speaking their own languages.

And here it is all respect, freedom, a perfect multicultural place to be.
