Nkechi Anele and Lucie Cutting are two friends who connected through difference. As two Nigerian-Australian women of a similar age and background Anele and Cutting had vastly different upbringings, with one growing up in an urban environment surrounded by different cultures and the other in a small town in country Victoria.
Questions about race, identity and culture form the basis of their friendship and led to the development of this site.
"We want people to have the same experience our friendship has brought us."
