INTERVIEW: LOU ALBANO

Okay, what do we need to know about you first?
That I’m half-Thai and half-New Zealander. My dad used to work with the Asian Development Bank and when my mom was pregnant with me, they were living in Geneva and then when they moved here, my mom gave birth to me. I was born and raised here.
Ah, so you’ve lived here since forever!
Well, I moved for a while. I went to New Zealand for six months then came back. My family’s not here anymore. It’s just my sister and I, the rest of them are in New Zealand.
