From Snow to Grow to Glow, a guest post by Naz Kutub

I wanted to see snow when I was a kid. I waited years. But it never happened. No one told me that it’d never happen in Singapore – the tropical island where I grew up.

See, I watched a ton of kids’ shows and cartoons back then, and I kept seeing children my age having the most fun in snow, especially around Christmas. But they were white as the snow they played in. While I was as brown as the dirt I rolled around in.
