The “Stories of Chinese New Zealanders” is a series of interviews with descendants of Chinese people living in Aotearoa New Zealand. The programme looks at the history of their hard work, their settlement and development, integration into New Zealand society, and dedication to contribute and actively promote Chinese culture. The programme also introduces first generation Chinese New Zealanders’ experiences in studying, working and living in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Aimee Poy was born in Gaoyao county, Guangdong province, China. Her father obtained a degree from a Baptist school and was a minister of a Baptist church in China. Aimee came to Wellington with her family in 1950 at age 14, as her father was invited by the New Zealand Baptist Church to work here as a minister at the Chinese Baptist Church in Newtown, Wellington. She studied radiograph and worked at Wellington Hospital. Her brother, David Fung was the author of the book “Turning Stone to Jade”. The focus of this book is on the history of the New Zealand Chinese Association.

We are grateful to the Chinese Poll Tax Heritage Trust and the Wellington City Council for their financial support and Wellington Access Radio for supporting and hosting the programme.

The programme “Stories of Chinese New Zealanders” will be on air from 8 September to 15 December 2019, every Sunday at 9-10pm, on Wellington Access Radio 106.1FM. Tune in to listen to the 15 interviewees’ unique stories. You can also listen to the programme on the internet at
