I want to be the best woman I can be. My dream is actually to be a policewoman but to start working in that field, you have to live a number of years in the UK and I haven't done that yet. My passion is to help people in any way I can and I hope to work towards my ambition by delivering excellent customer service as a beautician first.
When I was 10, I was sent abroad to Italy to live with my relatives. My parents wanted me to have a better opportunity in life but unfortunately things didn't go according to plan. In Italy, I didn't get a chance to go to normal school and as a result, I couldn't get a good job because I lacked a basic education. I was then sent to Canada to stay with other relatives but I was pushed into doing things I wasn't comfortable with. I refused to do them and was kicked out. I ended up homeless and decided to seek the help of a friend I knew in London. I came to the UK and I stayed on his couch for a few weeks, but that didn't work out either. Since then, I've moved again and I am staying on someone else's couch now.
I am so appreciative of the kindness people have shown me but being dependent on someone else and never having a stable home has been really difficult. I try to stay strong but on the inside, not being free feels so stressful. I just really want to get into work so I can be independent and have a better life. I want to live on my own, make my own money and be the best in whatever I do. I just want a chance to succeed.
Being sent abroad at such a young age meant that I rarely got a chance to see my parents and siblings. I miss them a lot because they make me so happy. Once I'm in work and earning a decent income, I can't wait to arrange a reunion so we can all be together once more, maybe in my own flat too!
