Write briefly why you chose this object and what it means to you

I chose this object because it represents the diversity of my life, where I live and the people I work with in Tower Hamlets. The street Brick Lane has been home to thousands of migrants over hundreds of years and I am a second generation British Bengali, born and breed in the borough.
