An Afternoon at the Abbey
Priya changed countries often as a child, moving from Zambia to Saudia Arabia to England. She was required to wear brown lace-ups at her English boarding school. They were on her feet when, at age 13, she was selected out of hundreds of students to recite the opening line of the Prayer of Peace at the Commonwealth Day celebrations at Westminster Abbey before the Queen. Now she feels grounded in Canada and realizes she is a child of the Commonwealth.
