Scope and Content
Our Journey is a tribute to Judy Schulz's mother who helped raise Judy's two daughters while Judy maintained her career. The film celebrates four generations of women in Judy's family, including her mother, herself, her daughters, and her grand-daughters. Judy's mother, Mrs. Suet Ping Yip, was born in 1922, and passed away in 2008. Judy was born in Hong Kong in 1955, and immigrated to Canada as an adult, later sponsoring her parents to join her. All of her five siblings soon followed. Judy's mother quit her job when Judy had her second daughter and helped to raise the two girls. Judy remembers her as a smart, kind, and hard-working mother and devoted grandmother. The girls knew her as "Pau Pau." Judy is proud to now be a "Pau Pau" herself, to two beautiful grand-daughters.
History/Biography
Judy Schulz has been a resident of Burnaby since 1980. She was born in Hong Kong and left home at age 17 first to England, and then immigrating to Canada in 1974. She originally settled in Vancouver. Though she had no family when she first arrived in Canada, her parents and all five of her siblings soon joined her in Canada. She worked in the medical field, and is now retired, but continues to live in Burnaby with Confederation Park as a favorite place to spend time.

Scope and Content
The video depicts the challenges of film maker Alfred Woo’s physical, social, and cultural transformation to a foreign country. Sentimentally prior to departing Hong Kong in 1954, Alfred was presented a fountain pen by some of his grade two classmates, a souvenir that he has cherished all these years despite losing contact with them long ago. In his seniority, he muses poignantly about the symbolism of this writing instrument and shares his wonderment about the destiny of these childhood benefactors.
History/Biography
Immigrating from Hong Kong to Canada as a child, Alfred Woo easily assimilated into the Canadian way of life at an early age and has enjoyed the best of both worlds. A law graduate, his professional career included service as a Crown Counsel, securities administrator, corporate executive, and as private practitioner. He also served in the Canadian Army (Reserve Force) as a legal officer and an artillery officer before being honorably discharged at the rank of Major. A Burnaby resident for over 30 years, and now retired, he continues to volunteer helping seniors, a community service club, and a veterans group.
