Yeemei Wong worked in Hong Kong as a school social worker where she met many young people and their families who lived in disadvantaged circumstances or in poverty. Yeemei then started studying Narrative Therapy in Australia and began to practice in New Zealand. She has now returned home and is working for an agency which supports unwed young mothers and their babies. Yeemei is dedicated to integrating art, music, documents or other creative media into her narrative practice. Yeemei is also passionate in connecting narrative lovers together.
Here is an illustration drawn by Yee Mei to tell a bit more about this lovely journey:
This video is inspired by the personal experience of Yeemei when she moved to Auckland, New Zealand from July 2013 to Oct 2014. She was interested in collecting migrant stories of Asian people on their wisdom of survival in a different context. In the video, Yeemei introduces the story of Jack, a Chinese young man who born in Vietnam. We saw the importance of acknowledging the use of mother language and integrating Chinese culture through narrative conversations. She would like to honour Jack to share his skills and knowledge on his mental health journey. With a variety of collective narrative documents used, the alternative story of Magic horse was co-created. You are welcome to contact Yeemei by email: [email protected]
