This project was a personal journey for me of getting back in touch with my heritage, an ode to my Indian-born grandparents, and an exploration of British Asian duality. The name “Rojak” comes a spicy fruit salad eaten in Singapore, where my father is from, which also translates to "mixture" or "eclectic mix" in colloquial Malay. Through my magazine I want to push the idea of preserving tradition and culture while still allowing it to progress and change. This is a concept a lot of the younger generation may battle with, especially with multiracial upbringings and the pressure of assimilating to western ideals. My narratives journey through stories from my childhood, from eating dosay on the beach to grappling with language barriers between myself and my grandfather.
