What is one thing you want people to take away from you?
“My identity isn’t being Japanese, nor is it being Bangladeshi. It isn’t from being a foreigner in Japan; it doesn’t come from being a woman. It isn’t because I live in Tokyo, it has nothing to do with my gender, my nationality, it isn’t from my region or my culture but stems from myself. I am Sharar Lazima. I like to question the world around me and think deeply about the philosophy behind things. I am full of curiosity. I love listening to music. I like thinking about the evolution of humans and our history. I think my identity blooms from these things.”
“The age of people having monolithic identities and stories is coming to a close. In being myself I symbolize a future that is approaching us.
For me I have no identity, I am me.”
